Distance Education is an established and recognized mode of education which is in consonance with changing socio-economic needs and emerging demands of the knowledge era. Keeping up with the spirit of Open University system and in the view of long-standing demand of heterogeneous groups of student's community. The Directorate of Distance Education of Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak, has started a number of courses. Over the years, DDE has expanded tremendously.
Out of 15 programmes being offered by DDE, 10 are leading to Postgraduate degree and 05 to Bachelor degree.
Through these 15 programmes, Directorate is imparting education to more than 50,000 students.
Students Support Services in open and distance learning system is quite different from other services. These services are not confined only to interactive counseling or solving the learners problems but also includes the personality development, soft-skills, career counseling, community education, promoting open and distance learning as per the National Education Policy i.e. Education for All. Further, the SSSCs also facilitate learning, counseling and to solve the problems of the distance learners which they face during their self-study from the study material supplied by the Directorate. Through SSSCs, these learners get an opportunity to interact with the counselors as well as with the peer group. Since the learners belong to different parts of the state/country and from different streams, so it is essential, to make the distance education programme not only meaningful and useful for the students pursuing different programmes being offered by the University through its Directorate but also to achieve the national objective of providing education to all and to reach at unreachable places.
Accordingly, the Directorate of Distance Education will organize Students Support Services Camps and solve their problems with the help of well qualified counselors or educators for the programmes being offered by it.
DDE is housed in a spacious building, which is properly ventilated and easily approachable. Enquiry cell and Computer lab are manned by experienced staff. The credit for the present status of the directorate goes to the invaluable participation and co-operation of the University authorities, IGNOU, DEC, NCTE & Statutory Bodies associated with Distance Education Systems.
