Online Education for a Glittering future


Jaipur National University is today all set to meet the challenges of globalisation through constant upgradation of skills and technology. The JNU-UTS online distance education programme is an example of this preparedness. The programme which has been launched with courses at the under graduation and post graduate level and integrated dual degree programmes makes upgradation of skills much easier. The biggest challenge of the distance mode of education was the lack of face-to-face interaction with teachers and fellow students. The proposed online programme uses the most advanced Learning Management System (LMS) Blackboard which empowers students with an e-learning environment. Here m-learning is a free learning mobile application for students which brings the campus experience to the mobile phone and provides access to a whole new world of mobile learning from anywhere, any-time. In addition students will also have access to the e-library and on line student support services. Quality assurance, universal access and industry academia tie-ups have been the motto of the School of Distance education and Learning (SODEL). Our efforts have received the wide recognition from the students and in a short span of three years the school in particular and JNU, Jaipur in general have become a desired destination. The popularity is evident in its admissions that are increasing with a jet speed. As students you will be assisted by the School of Distance Education in obtaining quality education, employable skills and placement support also for a successful career. I wish you great success and welcome you to the JNU-distance online learning programmes, and hope that this will prove a mile stone for shaping your glittering future.
