Our Courses provide several benefits over traditional correspondence based distance education programs. Online programs are gaining popularity due their flexibility, quality academics and interactivity between the faculty and the learners.
Online programs appeal the most to non-traditional students—those who are going back to school after years. They’re typically older and they have work and/or family commitments that keep them busy and limit their opportunities to attend class. Flexibility is a very important criterion for them, which is why online training fits the bill so well.
Students can learn according to their own convenient time and can also interact with their teachers using the messaging and forum modules of the Learning Management System.
Many of the online courses of the University are available in two admission cycles. Those students, who missed the admission cycle during the July session of the University, may opt to enter the January session for the courses providing this option.
Research suggests there are significant cost advantages in online learning over face-to-face learning. The courses of ANU have been priced very sensibly so as to cater to a very large number of students. The courses are also covered by various scholarships for the deserving and the needy.
Online programs use the expertise of several educators from across the globe. These educators are seasoned academicians and veteran industry professionals. Using the ICT enabled teaching format, the University has been able to bring in their expertise for the benefit of its students.
Most of the content available to the students in the programs is contemporary and relevant. Using cutting-edge technology, the University has been able to keep the online content up-to-date.
The Online learning platform provides an opportunity to the learner to connect with their fellow students. This provides greater access to expertise and knowledge of faculty members and peers. Such networking opens up opportunities of learning and beyond for the students.

Most reports on the subject point to the fact that Online Distance Learning Programs, due to its extensive use of Audio Video tools, has been quite effective with students. This is further reinforced by timely feedback with integrated online quizzes and tools to rapidly evaluate learning. The video lectures strive to simulate a real life classroom experience and provide mastery over the subject as compared to any correspondence program.
The 21st century has seen a digital revolution in the professional world. Most of the operations in a corporate (and increasingly in Government), are performed using technology. Our learning inculcates technology skills and hence is considered to be better than traditional distance programs.
