JSS Distance Education Could Be a Reality Soon

As per the news published on TOI, JSS AHER is going to launch its distance education courses soon.

As per the report published, JSS will join hands with Karnataka State Open University and University of Mysore to offer distance education courses in India.

If things to right, JSS may start offering these courses post June this year.

Initially courses in Life science and hospital management will be offered along with some certification programs. After that some new courses will be added.

There is no information available about the name of the courses. Most probably, only higher education courses will be introduced in the first phase.

MBA in hospital management will be one of the courses offered by the University, confirmed the university registrar.

The university will focus on online learning, and new courses will be added based on the demand.
Hands-on training programmes and weekend classes will be provided to students who will join the distance education courses from JSS.

The Ooty campus of the university will also get these courses. That means people from the Tamil Nadu state will also get benefited from these courses.

Last year, distance education bureau has allowed private universities to run distance education courses, and this is the outcome of that decision.  Earlier only state run universities were allowed to offer distance education courses.

Distance education bureau is making so many changes in how distance education is offered. Many new notifications are coming from UGC to make distance education better.

The ultimate goal of all of these steps is to make distance education well-regulated and improve the quality of distance education in India.

We have also heard that many universities are barred from offering distance education courses this year. The future of distance education looks bright in India.
