Distance Eduction

This article is about education over a distance. For learning that is spaced over time, see Distributed learning.

Distance education, distance learning, dlearning, or D-Learning is a mode of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional setting such as a classroom. Distance learning provides "access to learning when the source of information and the learners are separated by time and distance, or both." Distance education courses that require a physical on-site presence for any reason (including taking examinations) have been referred to as hybrid or blended courses of study. Massive open online courses (MOOCs), aimed at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web or other network technologies, are a recent development in distance education.

What is meant by University?

What is State Govt. University?

A State Govt. University is an institution of higher education and research, which is run by State Govt. A state university system in the United States is a group of public universities supported by an individual state, or a similar entity such as the District of Columbia. These systems constitute the majority of public-funded universities in the country. Each state supports at least one such system.

Federal funded colleges and universities are limited to military personnel and government employees. Members of foreign militaries and governments also attend some schools. These schools include the United States military academies, Naval Postgraduate School, and military staff colleges.

A state university system normally means a single legal entity and administration, but may consist of several institutions, each with its own identity as a university. Some states—such as California and Texas—support more than one such system.

State universities get subsidies from their states. The amount of the subsidy varies from university to university and state to state, but the effect is to lower tuition costs below that of private universities. As more and more Americans attend college, and private tuition rates increase well beyond the rate of inflation, admission to state universities is becoming more and more competitive

What is deemed university?

Deemed university is a status of autonomy granted to high performing institutes and departments of various universities in India. This status of 'Deemed-to-be-University', is granted by Department of Higher Education, Union Human Resource Development Ministry, on the advice of the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India, under Section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956. The UGC began in 1956 after Indian parliament passed the University Grants Commission Act "to make provision for the co-ordination and determination of standards in Universities and for that purpose, to establish a University Grants Commission."

The deemed university status enables not just full autonomy in setting course work and syllabus of those institutes and research centers, but also allows it to set its own guidelines for the admissions, fees, and instructions to the students.

It is autonomous in the sense of setting its own educational agenda (courses, syllabus, teaching methodologies etc.) It is administratively autonomous in the sense that it does not need to abide by the rules and regulations of any other university on administrative matters.

It can award degrees under its own name, instead of that of a university to which it is affiliated.
It cannot be an affiliating university in the sense of allowing other institutions to affiliate themselves to it.
It cannot be a purely teaching institution. Research has to be an integral part of its activities.

What is meant by private university?

The term "private" simply means that the university's funding comes from tuition, investments and private donors, not from taxpayers.
