Online education has given space for a host of e-education sites to enter the Indian market. It’s always exciting to learn from world-renowned experts and teachers from across the world, sitting in one corner of India. While this form of e-learning has gained immense popularity due to the pandemic lockdown, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has been a pioneer in this form of teaching. Keeping in view the global dynamics, and the dot-com wave in India at the time, IGNOU initiated its first online course in January of 2000. With an initiative to supplement, and not replace, traditional learning, this University currently offers 200 ODL courses (Open and Distance Learning) and 16 online programmes. There is a regional centre of IGNOU at Visakhapatnam as well.
The IGNOU is open for admissions and 15 July is the last date to register for admission into various UG and PG programmes offered in the July 2021 cycle.
