Distance Education

Distance education or distance learning, is a field of education that focuses on teaching methods and technology with the aim of delivering teaching, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional educational setting such as a classroom.


Although, distance education is not new internationally, but in India it has recently come in vogue. Today, distance education calls upon an impressive range of technologies to enable teachers and students who are separated by distance to communicate with each other either in real time (Synchronous) or delayed time (asynchronous).

Due to the rapid technological change and shifting market conditions, the education system across the globe is changing. It is challenged with providing increased educational opportunities without increased budgets. Many educational institutions are answering this challenge by developing distance education programmes. These types of programmes can provide adults with a second chance at a college education, reach that disadvantage by limited time, distance or physical disability and update the knowledge base of workers at their places of employment.

Thus all concerned with the future of distance education in this country. Should see the hidden opportunity in this service sector and re-orient themselves in a manner to compete with the forthcoming challenges and business opportunities.

Distance Education is an established mode of education being followed by decades by developed countries and being aggressively promoted by UNESCO in developing countries. It is a flexible system of education mainly catering professionals who work to earn a living but at the same time continuously want to upgrade their skills and also for those who cannot afford regular education and want slow paced education through short modules at periodic intervals.
