Open and Distance Learning:

Noble laureate AmartyaSen in his book “Development as Freedom” has made a comment that Japan was the first example of a country that built social opportunities and economic growth on the foundation of universal basic education. With a view to extension of the example of Japan the 1990 World Conference made “Education for all” as a global agenda to endorse the open and distance learning (ODL) system for developing knowledge and skills of the learners without dislocating them from their houses and work places. The tremendous expansion of ODL system amongst the masses suggests that the higher education is not confined only to elite section of Indian society which it had been before India’s independence. It has not only rooted out the uneven distribution of higher education opportunities but has reached to them too who are geographically isolated. Even the purview of the National Knowledge Commission has been widened as soon as it came under the fold of ODL system and considering its wide scope of providing flexible access to higher education (general, vocational and professional) the government (both in Central and State) are giving due emphasis on horizontal and vertical expansion of education through open and distance mode since 1980s.

Krishna KantaHandiqui State Open University, Assam, which started functioning from 11 December 2006 had completed its 15 (Fifteen) years of existence. Pramathesh Barua College is situated in the westernmost part of Assam. Considering the demography and low literacy status of the district, the open and distance learning centre was felt necessary in this College as the ideology of the distance mode of education is "Education Beyond Barrier". True to its sense the Pramathesh Barua College study centre of the KKHSOU has been serving to the under privileged, housewives, dropouts and service holders who are not able to pursue education in regular mode and that too without compromising quality of learning. The ODL system of education has become the essential part of our educational system. The very purpose of the system is to promote education and to reach the unreached. Here the “Lifelong learning” and “Education beyond barrier” reflects the motto of the university as well as of the study centre which need to be nourished for the better cause of humanity and educational environment of the locality as we cannot deny the social responsibility to educate people irrespective of race, age, educational background and geographical boundaries.
