Ignou To Develop National Repositories Of Learning Contents & Research Materials

18th June, 2005

Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) intends to develop National Repositories of Learning Contents and Research Materials for programmes on demand to suit the learners place, pace and time, announced Prof. H. P. Dikshit, Vice Chancellor in his message to students.

Prof. Dikshit stated that IGNOU has received immense support from conventional peers and encouragement from all our collaborators in our untiring efforts to reach out to the disadvantaged and challenged. These efforts require massive expansion and use of ICT capabilities. IGNOU had plans to harness Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) from the very beginning to enhance access with equality of opportunities to the deprived sections of our society, he stated. Very bold and innovative experiments on pilot basis have been conducted to use newer technologies.

Today, the University uses the latest state-of-the-art ICT for delivery of education through Gyan Darshan the network of educational TV Channels and Gyan Vani, a cooperative of 17 Radio stations. With the launch of an exclusive Satellite for education EDUSAT- by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) we are creating a network of 125 Satellite Interactive Terminals all over the country with 10-12 teaching ends in different cities to pool expertise and best practices. Education should soon be available to all at the doorsteps of even those living in the remotest areas, he added.

IGNOU Introduces Progress Report Book

IGNOU Introduces Progress Report Book

With the change of guard, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is all set to make sweeping reforms in its approach towards delivering education through distance mode.

Apart from making its courses localised and making the universitys structure more decentralised, V N Rajasekharan Pillais, the new vice chancellor of IGNOU, primary aim is to eliminate the difference between the degrees offered by the conventional system and distance education. Agreeing on the disadvantage the graduates of distance edu¬cation face at the job market, he said that with his personal intervention at all level, he should ensure that the degrees of IGNOU are not only at par, but also of a much higher quality than the conventional system degrees.

In his first proactive approach he, during an induction programme, announced the intro¬duction of the progress report book for stu¬dents of the university. He said:The process of learning shall be highly interactive and this comprehensive record of the teaching/learn¬ing/evaluation activities of a student shall be maintained by the student duly authenticated by study centre coordinators and regional centres. This will create an atmosphere of accountability at all levels of learning.

Deviating from his predecessors, Pillai is of the view that although Distance Education Council (DEC) is an important body for quali¬ty assurance of open and distance learning, the council need not have an autonomous status. He said: Ensuring voluntary quality assurance on the part of the open universi¬ties and institutions offering distance educa¬tion should be the primary aim. All good institutions will definitely come forward.

The VC also emphasised on continuous and extensive collaboration among open school system, and conventional and open universities. He said that the primary aim of open universities should be to emphasise on capacity building.

MSc courses in Agriculture from IGNOU

Global Open Food and Agriculture University (GO-FAU) and Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) recently announced the launch of MSc in Agricultural Economics and Business and MSc in Agro-ecology.

IGNOU will fund the programmes which will be offered through distance mode.The fee structure will be determined by IGNOU. According to the programme leader of International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI),Suresh Babu,the courses will have international approval, but will be certified by the Indian university or institution that would be partnering GO-FAU.

GO-FAU, an IFPRI initiative, will provide the education material, training of faculty and exchange programmes with international agriculture institutes for research. The post-graduate programmes in agriculture is the result of IFPRIs endeavour to further agriculture education. IGNOU was approached to partner the programmes because of its distance learning delivery mechanism and students evaluation system. Besides, the universitys new department of agriculture would also prove beneficial for the new agriculture programmes.

Stating that GO-FAU would be happy to partner with any university interested in agriculture issues, Babu said: We are looking for partnerships rather than offering our own courses directly. We dont want to compete, but strengthen the local institutes. He said that the purpose is to create a dialogue on diverse agriculture and related issues and to look into the facilities available in the university and offer international support in delivering such courses.

On future collaborations with other Indian universities, Babu said that education in agriculture needs to change to meet global standards. The collaborations will prepare the farmers to meet the globalised world head-on. For this, we need to prepare the institutions, which include trade and marketing, research and academic, he added.
