Is distance education value equal to the regular education

Friends, first see carefully what is distance education mode; in India universities which are affiliated by Uuniversity Grant Commission(UGC) can provide the reguler study in their state or given area, if they provide the degree. Outside the state then it is called distance mode degree & for this they have to get affiliation from Distance Education Council (DEC). There is not a big difference in reguler & distence mode, today in India education is becoming a source to make money; if you have talent, then do not think about it just concentrate your mind on your future.

Best of luck

Hi Veerendra,
Distance Education : started for those candidates who are engaged in Job or Business & have less time to attend college/university regularly. The Degree offered after completion of Distance Education is Approved by AICTE & recognized by UGC.
So, There is no difference between Regular & Distance Education. BUT, some renowned companies preffer REGULAR Candidates; as they think that Regular Candidates have the much more knowledge than Distanced one; as Distanced candidate may copy from Books in their house for preparing exam papers.

Veerender Kumar, it is good to see a new member posting such an interesting & relevant query about whether a degree obtained through distance education has an equal value as a regular degree. Just note that there is a spell check tool that you should use before posting. I have edited your post & corrected the spelling mistakes.

Regarding the topic: A degree via distance mode is as good as a regular degree as long as it is a recognized one as pointed out by yourself and Anindya. I myself have got my M.A. degree through distance mode.

there is no difference between distance & regular studies.
Only diference is, incase of Distance you need not to attend college & in other case, you must show minimum of 80% attendance.
Degree & exam pattern moralless same.
You can do Distance Education. India's most renowned institute IGNOU.

Hi,
My opinion is distance education is not valued when compare to regular education. because in today's world nobody response distance education. Iam also one of the student of distance education. I am not responsed in society. iam not a genius. but I am also think that i have some efficiency. Distance education is not for career making studies it's only for only worked persons to increase their talent and for promotions or creating social status. One out of hundred only success in the distance learning by going a whitecoller job. in private concerns only they searching for talented persons. They also first ask about whether the candidate is first class in their degree. If you do your further studies in Distance education Select most popular universities.then only you are also treated as a knowledged person.The top most open university is IGNOU. you select universities like this. If it is your first degree try to do in regular.

All the best.

Hi!

I feel that there is no difference between distance and regular education. Infact after the concept of distance education has come into picture, most people who did not have a chance to study in regular stream have started studying through distance education. It is my experience that i have seen people aged more than 50 and 60 years also attend these distance classes. Most working people prefer distance education rather than regular stream. Only one thing that has to be taken care of is that you should choose a university which offers distance education has UGC, AICTE and DEC recognition for its course.

Go ahead and get your degree
All the best
Shanti

Modern times are times of Innovation. Mode of education is not the deciding criteria in ones's career. Following factors are given equal weightage for selection:

1)Minimum Qualification ( Dist. ,Regular not withstanding)
2)Applied knowledge
3)Personality of the candidate
4)IQ,EQ through psychometric tests
5)Fitting with comapany culture etc

It also depends on the area of work e.g. academic fields more often then not prefer regular mode for teachers, HR, administrative jobs, managerial jobs give more imporatnce to work ex. However, for Technical jobs regular mode is preferred.

Some difference there is between distance and regular
In regular when you listen to lectures in class 50% of preparation is completed and you can interact with classmates and professors.
while distance education you can do job as well as studies will be continued. Those who are not doing any job and idle should go for regular batch only. It is better.

Hey,
Distance Education is not so good as Regular Classroom Education specially if you are doing some Engineering ,Technology ,Medical such type of study.
Have you heard about the news of IGNOU University which provides the Engineering Programme by Distance Education.The students who graduated by distance education through IGNOU Distance Learning , there certificate were rejected by the HARYANA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION .
So it is not a better option.
You can not get the practical knowledge as you can get in Regular classroom programme.

Although the curriculum in both the cases is same but there is a difference in the teaching and learning part. In a regular course a student is regularly in touch with the subjects and grasps the thorough knowledge but in case of correspondence or distance learning a student reads and learns the selective part of the curriculum due to any of the reasons.

Usually distance learning is opted by the weak students or the persons who are very busy and do not have much time to attend regular classes and thus they do it to get the degree or diploma for the sake of educational merit and nothing else.

So regular courses does stand a strong chance to be given preference than distance learning.

In a distance education subjects are taught with the help of self instruction materials called a SIM.Once or twice in the academic year of education the enrolled & admitted student is called for contact programme where subjects are quickly brushed(/teaching will be done in crash programme).The student has to make self study & appear for exam as per schedule intimated by post/Email.


In regular face to face education the student's attendance is compulsory & attending the college is compulsory.Teaching will be done face to face & no SIM is issued. Some colleges provide brief study materials for study. ...both are not equal

Hello

Regular education is much better than the distant education as when you are going out for taking education you got overall personalty development because of the interaction among the people. You met many people make new friends and in direct contact with your teachers who can help you to clear your doubts on the spot.

If you are in any job than want to learn something than it is good to join the distant education but it is good for the professional studies. Basic studies should be done on regular basis.

With regards

Distance education and regular education do not hold equal importance in my perspective.They are two very different modes of education and different at every level.As far as distance learning is concerned it is a very efficient method of learning in terms of getting the best of knowledge being anywhere in the world and minimises the distance factor to a very large extent.The interested indivisuals can share their doubts,discuss any subject and get knowledge shared which describes the expanse of this mode of education.but regular education defines in itself regularity,interaction at one to one basis,a better sharing of knowledge with the teacher having a greater hold over the students.Besides at the level of efficiency both the education mode a very much at par with alot depending upon the teacher.Teachers are also more at ease with imparting knowledge at one to one basis.Besides at the infrastructure level the distance education requires a lot more involvement of funds and resources.

Both have its edges, but one should not prefer distance education if he has time and money to spent. This will make them more lazy and tiredness to their motivation level.

Hi,
Distance education is the need of the hour today. Every year, thousands of students are passing out from different schools and colleges. It becomes very difficult for most of them to get admission in regular courses as the number of seats in colleges are always limited.There are some others who cannot afford to continue regular learning due to various factors like financial constrains, jobs involvements or other family circumstances.

Therefore, distance education and learning programmes have become necessary and also popular for those who wants to continue his/her studies further.
However, before taking admission in a course one should keep the follwing things in mind:
* Whether the college, university or any other school offering online distance education is accredited by a state or provincial government for doing so.
* Whether the degree, diploma or certificate offered by those instituations are recognized by other colleges, universities and government institutions.

In my view, if the above things are kept in mind and verified well before taking a decision, distance learning is the best and only next to regular courses.

Hard Work is the key to success.

Hi

Distance education is not equal to the regular education in any aspect either in studies or personal career wise it is very different.

The books you may read and write in both the education system is same but the knowledge and communication skills one can gain in regular is not equal to the person studying distance education.

Distance education should be preferred only after doing post graduation and want to do some courses like in MBA and all.

Hai Veerender,
The courses done either by regular study or distance mode are equivalent.The only thing to be considered is the knowledge gain through the course of study.There are some advantages in regular courses like systematic syllabus completion,schedules,and interactions and live experiences etc. These are not possible in Distance education mode ( may be some interactions through contact programme).If it is not at all possible to study a regular course then you can do through distance mode. There is no differecen in the certificate and its weightage.

hi
not at all.i have read before some days in news paper that the distance education regulation is going to be revised,as distance education institutions are growing like mushrooms ! IGNOU is much more reliable than other institution ,please check for all legal affiliation before taking part in a distance education course!

as for the course is concerned..it helps them who is working already and want a up gradation!
