Every country has realised the need of educating its population in the real sense of the term. Distance education provides at least necessary technical and organisational preconditions for a universal admission to continued and higher education. Open education acquires a definite role in developing the right kind of social values, attitudes and habits among the weaker sections including the tribals. All issues concerned with distance education and open learning are included and discussed in this book. It will be highly useful to educationists, administrators, teachers and students.
