Distance Learning Courses: The Changing Face of Education

Change is not only necessary, but inevitable too. Almost nothing is what it used to be and everything around us is evolving and changing at its own pace. Earlier education was a luxury which could only be afforded by a handful and was considered necessary only for the elite class. Unfortunately, in India education has still not reached everyone. 

In India a lot of students discontinue their education due to lack of financial resources or because they have to start working to support themselves and their families. Secondly, the concept of sabbatical is uncommon in India. So how does one gain new skills or get a higher/additional degree? The answer is distance learning courses.

Distance education in India gained popularity very quickly. It is as if it is what people were looking or waiting for. Distance learning courses are flexible in nature. One does not need to attend classes, and thus there is no compulsion of attendance, they are affordable and cheaper than regular university education and if pursued from reputed and recognized universities hold the same value as a regular degree. What more can anyone ask for? You can study anytime as per your convenience, time and pace and email or post your assignments. Some universities also give the option of on demand exams, where the student is given slots and he or she can choose the date and time of his/her exam as per his/her convenience.

Distance education offers a series of vocational as well as traditional courses. One can opt for a diploma or certificate course in Banking, IT, Fashion Designing, Jewelers Designing, Tours and Travels, Hospitality or traditional courses like under graduate courses, post graduate courses and even a doctorate. Whether you are seeking a higher degree to apply for a promotion or a better job or just want to enhance and/or increase your knowledge or skills by opting for a specialization, there are many options in distance education – there is a program to suit everyone’s interests and requirement.
