Indian HRD Ministry to create distance education regulator

Views: 297

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD), Indian Government, is planning to create an independent distance education regulator to monitor and maintain the standards of open learning in the country.

India already has Distance Education Council (DEC) functioning under the aegis of the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), but still wants to make it entity independent of the central university. Under this proposal, the DEC will be an independent statutory body to promote, coordinate and regulate the standards of all distance education programmes offered in the country. The entire range of open learning will be covered from correspondence courses to programmes offered through satellite channels and the Internet.
