Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has prepared a list of tasks that could be undertaken in the coming years to enhance its growth and reach.Special onsite admission campaigns are in the pipeline. Learning support mechanisms would be enhanced and contact points for learners would be established, thus increasing the contacts.
According to reports, IGNOU Vice Chancellor V.N. Rajasekharan Pillai said,"There are over 250,000 public educational and training institutions in the country, all of which can become skill-development centres without affecting the formal teaching and other activities during class hours.These can be harnessed to provide skills to the untrained youth of the country."
IGNOU with its country-wide network of study centres has the greatest potential in the country to address the issue of skill deficit in Indian youth.
