Distance Education has been in existence in India for the last three decades. Vertical and horizontal expansion that it has made during these years has enabled it to establish its foothold in the realm of higher education of the country. Apart from covering over 18th of the total population of students in colleges and universities, distance education has opened vast new avenues of higher education and skill development for those persons whom the rigours of the work-a-day world either have derived of the opportunity of higher education or have tied them down to those occupations which ill-fit into their living or potential competence. While these years witnessed this system making an amazing progress, they have brought to the surface manifold problems that it suffers from. These problems call for an urgent attention of the decision-makers at various levels. Unless an early solution to them is found and the working of the system is streamlined, distance education would not be able to deliver the goods in as great a measure as expected of it. This volume seeks not only to portray the system in its minutest detail but also brings out each and every problem that cripples its functioning. Efforts have also been made to offer side by side, solutions to those problems. Based on practical experience, relevant documentary evidence, field surveys and, above all, the learned literature, this book provides a vivid and detailed account of the system both in its micro and macro form.
