I appreciate your unfathomable interest in IIMT Studies. Being the Vice- Chancellor of the Institution I welcome you to IIMT Studies, a place of superiority in education.
So far, Distance education has been interpreted in as very narrow sense that is to get a degree privately or through correspondence. But today, the implications of Distance education, so called, education through correspondence, has gone such a long way that it has surpassed even the merits of regular study, both qualitative as well as quantitatively.
Distance Education, Today, has become the order of the day, both from time point of view and economic point of view. The horizon of educated people is becoming so widened only due to distance education. Distance education has taught the people EARN WHILE LEARN THEORY. This was totally neglected in the past. Not only this, even Distance education has awakened the neglected rural population. Distance Education has enabled literates to overcome illiterates. More over Distance Education has provided the chance to everyone to get education. It is quite cheap, time saving and qualitative as compare to regular study.
No doubt, today, the institutions have made it purely commercial and only a source of earning income at the cost of its positive effects and implementation. Distance education is not at all a bad thing but the need is to understand it and also its for reaching positive effects. The need is to redefine, reinterpret, remodel, restructure and reunderstand the true meaning of distance education.
The model of distance education has been adopted purely to spread education to every corner so that the aim of government policy to remove illiteracy from India, but to achieve this aim, the slogan of Distance education may not be misunderstood an misapplied. So, caution, here is first to redefine it properly in true prospective without any biasedness and political motive.
Distance education enables the people to utilize properly and optimally there utilized talent. It has proved torch bearer a especially for poor’s, that even they can also get education, despite the fact, they have merger sources at their disposal. They can reach to the unreached positions through distance education, which they have never dreamt of even. Distance education is quite helpful to enlighten the dark dungeons of the people of remote areas.
Distance Education should not be taken as a casual; rather it should be treated as a very good source of getting education in those areas where the education facilities are not available. The need is to streamline the Distance education network. Distance education should not be taken as a Education Shop but it should be considered as open Education Temple where everybody is free to go and get education. Another important point is that it is less burdensome and cheaper also. Distance education quite is iconic, unique and valuable in its approach and feature.
International Institute of Management and Technical Studies is going to re model Distance education, keeping in view it’s plus and minus points, future global implications and will try to become exemplary in the distance education word. The network of Distance education will be totally streamlined, foolproof, free from commercial angle and unbiased.
