In today’s world distance education is very popular with students. All the major universities have introduced distance-learning programmes for students. The system and its acceptability have revolutionised the progress of study. Distance learning saves time and a student can be sitting at home or at their workplace. It also saves money as the student does not have to purchase textbooks, but can access all materials online. The course fee is much less too, about 10% less than traditional study and attending classes at university.
Educational activity of the student
A student who has enrolled for distance learning is entitled to access all of the study materials on the server. The study material includes lectures, references, assignments and training tests. Throughout the academic year the student works through the study materials and can consult the relevant teacher regarding any clarifications needed. The student can be located anywhere for the distance-learning programme. All they need is a computer and an Internet connection. They can sit at home or at work to study.
A student can also work at an educational consulting centre of the university located near their place of residence. A teacher will monitor the students progress based on the online assignments completed and working models.
A credit exam session will be held for students of the distance-learning programme. It will be a personal face-to-face meeting with the examiner. This meeting will be held at the university campus and as well as in all regional centres. The student can meet the examiner where it is convenient and preferable to themselves.
Remember, while a correspondence student has to attend the university four times a year for consultation sessions, a distance-learning student only has to attend once a year (between May and June) for the control session.
