Distance Education in India

Updated on: Aug 7, 2012
After food, it is education that has posed as the second greatest challenge for human community. It is a sector where the governments of the world countries have pumped-in more funds but unfortunately education hasn’t reached the grass root level of the human community, even now.

The consequences has been disastrous. On one hand we have some of the most outstanding men in the fields such as literature, software technology, engineering, management, medical, biotechnology... on the other we also have substantial inhabit; some of the most illiterates in the globe today. What a striking contrast! But there is no point in shying away from the stark reality.

How can the problem of illiteracy be overcome? There are many who wish to join in the mainstream of Distance Education. The fire to study and educate oneself is no doubt a healthy indication but that often got drained due to the lack of proper facilities. It was a stumbling block that was removed with the emergence of distance education.

Distance education has really opened a new window of opportunities for those who desire for further studies. In a way it has helped numerous professionals, dropouts (school & college), housewives, etc to accomplish their unfinished dreams. It has immense relevance, particularly in a country like India, where pursuing education is a pricey affair.

The whole purpose of providing Distance education is to provide cost-effective, quality education to large sections of our population including those living in remote and far flung areas.

Even we at National Network of Education (NNE) are already in the mainstream of disseminating the education information to all users free of cost. We receive scores of career queries everyday, which again is a shinning testimony of the great curiosity among the discerning users to know about the various options that education has to offer.
