As the term itself suggests, when a student completes a course away from an actual campus, it is generally called open learning. It is also known as distance learning. This type of learning includes many types of learning, including classes available through mail and also online classes.
The development and acceptance of "Distance Education" both in the developed and developing countries is growing fast. The reason behind such an acceptance is its flexible approach and user friendly technique of education. It can provide a viable alternative for everyone who needs to pursue education further to expand his horizons of knowledge, to sharpen his existing knowledge, to upgrade his knowledge, skill and training and thereby, making learning a fulfilling experience.
Open learning means you study in your own time. You read course material, work on course activities, write assignments, and get the qualification.
