About Distance Learning
Distance learning program is different from the traditional education system. In this mode of learning you need not to go any institute or college on regular basis. You can study from home with the help of study material provided by university or autonomous institute. This method of study is very helpful for those students whose financial condition is not so good and for those also who are living at remote places and regular traveling is too hectic for them. Because the courses available in distance learning are not so expensive as compared to regular courses. I think its true, that distance learning is a boon for students from remote areas and who can not go to cities for further studies. Today distance learning method is also popular in cities. In cities students don’t have time to attend regular classes who are in a job, so they prefer distance learning courses. In this post I will discuss about various course available in distance learning mode. Now a days almost every degree course is available under distance learning such as BA, MA, B Com, M Com, B Sc and M Sc etc. There are also various diploma courses available under it. There are many universities and institutes which are providing distance learning courses in India.
Features and Benefits of Distance Learning
In distance learning, universities provide study material in form of books, e-books etc. Some universities also provide online study material, when you have time you can study online. Weekly classes are also provided by universities and institutes, as per your convenience you can attend classes or study from home. These types of facilities are very helpful for students. Before getting admission you should gather some information about university or institute. You should only get admission in university which is approved by UGC (University Grants Commission) and institute authorized by AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education).
One important thing about distance learning is that the syllabus of courses is almost same in comparison to regular courses. Course duration is almost same in this mode of education but some courses are available in short duration. In distance learning education, generally courses are available under both annual system and as well as semester system. You have to attend and qualify exams conducted by your university or institute, but if you not attend or qualified exam due to any reason then you can take that exam later in next semester or year, this is a plus point of distance learning. If you are doing a job after completing your graduation and you need a master degree for promotion or for a better job then you can get your master degree by distance learning without disturbing your job, this is a very big benefit of distance learning education. If you are doing a simple job and want a professional degree without affecting your job then you can get it easily through distance learning education system. There are many professional courses are available such as BCA, BBA, MCA, MBA etc and also many diploma courses available in distance learning at some less fee as compared to regular learning, so you can choose course according to your interest and make better future for you.
As we can see that there are many benefits of this education system and it is also popular today, so it’s a good option for the aspirants of remote areas. I think the best part of this system is that you can complete your studies without disturbing your earnings.
