Distance learning education in India has gained respectability over the years. Students and educators no longer treat online or distance studies as an alternative in case of non performance at the regular school or college level. A large section of the student community is opting for distance education while they concentrate on important career and personal priorities. The concept of multi-tasking and work-life-study balance has begun to dominate the competitive and driven modern societal existence.
