Taking a step forward in the direction of Distance Education, School of Open Learning (SOL), Delhi University, which offers under-graduate courses in the distance mode, has decided to offer courses in online mode too. SOL is among four institutes whose proposal for online course was approved by UGC. The online course is aimed at attracting global students who would be able to access the course material from the University's website.
An official from UGC spoke to NDTV on phone and said that SOL will upload the learning materials on its website by November this year and start enrolling students in the program from January 2020.
The courses which are, reportedly, on offer are the same courses which were being offered by SOL in distance mode - BA, B.Com., BA English Honors, BA Political Science Honors, and B.Com. Honors.
The University is yet to make a formal announcement about the online courses.
Meanwhile, students enrolled in distance courses at SOL, DU are awaiting the result for undergraduate examinations which should be released anytime soon. SOL, DU conducts annual examinations in May and June and the corresponding results are declared in October.
The official also informed that SOL has completed publication of undergraduate results today. Result of more than 80,000 BA first year students has also been uploaded on the website.
The website is currently unresponsive, hence students will be able to check their result in some time.
