Topic: Open and distance learning system
The motivational speech was delivered by Pro. A.K.Chandra, He focused on Open and Distance learning system as technique of teaching and learning approach.
In the words of Prof. Chandra “Open Learning system is the system to facilitate individual learners learning”. He divided learning system into two parts i.e Close Learning System and Open Learning System. According to him a close learning system is nothing but a traditional teaching and learning system, which is an institutional based learning system and learners are taught first then they are asked to raise questions. In contrast in an open learning system, no institutional learning is focused but learners are assigned the task first and when they feel any problem they consult their master.
He further spoke learners expectation are fulfilled in Open learning system and not restricted to an opportunity to any formal degree. According to him the more autonomy, the more open is a learning system and the less autonomy the close is the learning system.
Enrollment; in a close learning system there is a limited seat for learners, while in an open learning system there is no restriction of seat for learners.
Attendance; Generally 75% attendance is compulsory for learners in a close learning system while in an open learning system there is no any compulsion for attendance.
Standard course material; In a close learning system, there are structural based course materials and the learners are bound to go through the same course and the same paper.
While in an open learning system learners are free to pursue any paper and any course material, there are unstructured course and semi-structured courses are available for them.
Method of teaching; a close learning system is in fact a lecture based, competitive and a teacher-centered system, on the other hand an open learning system is a learners-centered and not lecture based.
Assessment/Evaluation; in a close system the assessment of learners are made on the basis of standard examination procedure in order to promote them into next class. While in an open system self assessment procedure is focused.
Prof. Chandra explain the whole learning system by giving suitable examples.
