Quality higher education has become the privilege of elite few since the conventional education system cannot reach to large population. Open education system aims to liberate this quality higher education for the large population in an informal way. Normally, minimal or no restrictions are put for the admission, although same quality standards are maintained for the examination system. This has led to the concept of ‘Open and Distance Learning System’ through Open University.
This Open University normally uses distance education method for teaching and learning. In this method, there is more emphasis on self-study by learner himself. Much more additional academic inputs are provided in distance education system. Latest computer, communication, audio-video and Internet technology dramatically improves the effectiveness of distance education. Distance learning is one of the most dramatic technology-based recent changes that occur in education. Communication technology enables students to receive instruction despite geographic and/or time separation, which makes traditional classroom learning impossible.
