Located in the Eastern part of the country, Bihar is also considered a hub of many higher educational schools or institutes. Like other states, in Bihar too, the students started giving preferences to distance learning courses due to multiple advantages that this mode of learning has to offer. Most of the students pursue correspondence courses. Various institutes and universities have to offer various undergraduate and postgraduate courses through distance learning mode.
If we observe then we find that there are primarily four main universities in Bihar which offer distance learning courses. Here is the list of these four:
- Lalit Narayana Mithila University
- Patna University
- Nalanda University
- Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University
Why students choose distance learning programs?
Distance learning has become the most preferred choice for most of the students these days. The students are no more interested to follow the conventional style of learning where they had to go out for classroom learning. Time has changed and everything has gotten advanced. In the education sector too, there are lots of technologies came up to facilitate learning in a flexible manner.
Most of the students are turning to jobs or preparation of government jobs. This is why distance learning seems to them the best way to bridge the gap. One can pursue any course of choice devoting little time to their course, though it varies course to course. Distance mode of learning is the time saving and flexible mode of learning available to the students these days. They do not have to go anywhere. They can take the assistance of online learning modules, notes and online classes too. In a gist, they can study anywhere, anytime, as per the convenience of their home or availability of time.
Aforementioned reasons made distance learning popular in Bihar too. The students there understood the importance and advantages of this flexible mode of learning and therefore commenced taking admission into the distance course of their choice.
