Kerala University to Start Semester System for Distance Education Degree Courses

One of the most popular university of south India, Kerala University is set to introduce Semester System in degree courses running under distance education mode. Earlier the courses were being offered under private stream system. The new changes will be applicable from the next year. The decision was taken during a meeting held few days back headed by Pro Vice-Chancellor N. Veeramanikandan. The system will be introduced & will be compulsory for all the students except for regular students. All the students other than students registered in regular courses, required to register directly with the School of Distance Education on the university campus or the Learner Support Centres.

The decision was taken based on the facts that regular students were getting good marks because of internal marks and students under distance learning mode were lagging behind. This step will be really helpful to fill this gap. Because of lesser marks students under distance mode were finding it difficult to make it to admission in post graduate courses.

R.S. Sasi Kumar, member of the Syndicate, said that the decision on marks given as internal assessment for distance education will be taken in further meetings. As of now no decision has been taken on how these marks will be given.

Kerala University is planning to start 60 more Learner Support Centres, within the jurisdiction of the university & inviting applications from the qualified candidates. Through this the university will strengthen it's reach within its jurisdiction. It has been noticed that university is already running 130+ learning support centers within the state & adding these 60 learning support centers will make the count close to 200.

As of now Kerala University is offering 54 courses in the distance mode of learning under various disciplines. Our team has already published a detailed post about the courses offered by Kerala University Distance Education.
