Scope of Distance
After food, it is education that has posed as
the second greatest challenge for modern India.
It is a sector where the government should have
pumped in more funds but unfortunately didn't.
The consequences were disastrous. On the one hand
we have some of the most outstanding men in fields
such as literature, software technology, engineering,
management, medical, biotechnology; on the other
we also substantially inhabit some of the most
illiterates in the globe today. What a striking
contrast! But there is no point in shying away
from the stark reality.
How can the problem of illiteracy be overcome?
There are many who wish to Join in the mainstream
of Distance Education. The fire to study and educate
oneself is no doubt a healthy indication but that
often gets drained due to lack of proper facilities.
It was a stumbling block that was removed with
the emergence of distance education.
Distance education has opened a new window of
opportunities for those who craved for further
studies. In a way it has helped numerous professionals,
dropouts (school & college), housewives, etc
to accomplish their unfinished dreams. It has
immense relevance, particularly in a country like
India, where pursuing education is a costly affair.
Even we at APEX are already in the mainstream
of disseminating the education information to
all users at free of cost. We receive scores of
career queries everyday, which again is a shining
testimony of the great curiosity among the discerning
users to know about the various options that education
has to offer.
