The New Era of Education
Today, in every walk of modern life, information and communication technology has become the base for development in every sphere, including education. This new and changing demand for education has led to the inception of a new era, the era of Distance Education, which has reconfigured the way a student learns.

From home assignments/tutorials to web-based instruction and online learning, Distance Education has emerged as the most remarkable technology based innovation in education.

Distance Education has brought education to the doorstep of the learner and opened paths for progression to all. Due to the continuous shortening of gap between the Distance Education and its Regular counter-part, Distance Education is no longer the second choice, but is a preferred mode of education of an individual.

Distance Education endows an unmatched flexibility among its students by virtue of which even working professionals, entrepreneurs or housewives can look forward to pursue higher education and upgrade their knowledge, while continuing to do whatever they are doing.

Today, Distance Education makes a significant contribution in higher education as it has become the most relevant and appropriate revolution in the development of education to meet the challenges of access, affordability and suitability. Distance Education makes lifelong learning possible. Along with an increased access to education, Distance Education offers convenience, flexibility and affordability.
