Directorate of Distance Education, Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Hyderabad
Established in the year 1998, the Maulana Azad National Urdu University is a premier, central university. Set up with the vision to impart skill-driven, contemporary education through the medium of Urdu, the university offers courses in a broad range of fields in its two satellite campuses, in addition to its main campus in Hyderabad. Further, the university has a committed placement cell which imparts industry-oriented skills and professional networking to its students.
The Maulana Azad National Urdu University houses a distance learning arm, the Directorate of Distance Education. The directorate offers diploma, certificate, undergraduate, and postgraduate level courses to each and everyone, who is not able to be a part of mainstream education. Through its large network of regional centres, sub centres, and learner support centres, the directorate offers convenient mentoring and assistance to the students. Also, the directorate offers wide and engaging resources in the form of diligently delivered video lessons. The Directorate of Distance education has earned its due approval from the Distance Education Bureau (DEB).
It would have been a taxing situation if students of distance education had to go all the way to the main office of the Directorate of Distance Education for every single of their queries. The directorate has established a large bee-hive of Regional Centres, Regional Sub-Centres, and Learner Support Centres in various places for the timely guidance of the students with their queries with respect to administration, curriculum, and examination.
Founded with the vision to provide its educational services to the masses, the directorate supplies openly accessible resources on its website for everyone. Therefore, anyone, besides its distance learning students, can download the soft copy of the resources for conceptual clarity.
The Directorate of Distance Education has an exclusive Youtube channel, where competent subject experts post video lectures on a regular basis. The videos are made by the directorate’s versatile International Media Centre (IMC). The lessons are comprehensive and offer an engaging classroom experience to the students from the comforts of their homes.
The directorate has an ecosystem that is empowered digitally by the Centre for Information Technology (CIT). The centre is responsible for the provision of online admissions and digitally apprising students of updates, regarding administration, admission, and curriculum. It is due to the persistent efforts of the centre that the students can study from anywhere through their phones.
To automate the learning environment of the students, the directorate as well as the university has a learning management portal, named the University Management System. The portal can be used by the students to check their attendance, access the syllabus and results, and post a grievance.
To proffer students in distance education with an interdisciplinary knowledge base, the Directorate of Distance Education provides assessments, based on a choice-based credit system. The students can choose the desired course in another branch of knowledge.
