Delhi University’s School of Open Learning (DUSOL) is all set to conduct all operations regarding teaching or administrative work via internet.
To save time and money Delhi University’s school of open learning came up with a new programme to provide study material in pen drives, CDs or memory cards to students who have enrolled themselves in this new session of 2014-15.
It is a new and improved way of education for affordable students. The economically weaker sections will be getting printed study material from the institute.
It will all start with first year students who will get the soft copies of the study materials starting from the new academic session. The digital way of learning will help the authorities to display the audio-visual matter that will influence learning.
The sub-committee of the governing body declared that a hike in fees is also in the list. The hike will be of about Rs 350 which includes Rs 100 for tuition fees, Rs 100 for library security deposit and Rs 150 for personal contact programme to meet the expenses. C S Dubey, chairperson of Campus of Open Learning states that this idea is to make the best study material available to students free of cost online. Students can access them at home on their computers or even at the study centres.
As per reports, about Rs 5 crore is spent by SOL for printing study material and this type of new initiative will help the students as well as the administration to save money and time simultaneously.
