AN ANALYTICAL STUDY OF ONLINE ADMISSION SYSTEM IN IGNOU FROM LEARNERS’ POINT OF VIEW

ABSTRACT

 

Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) is offering around 225 certificate, diploma, degree and master programmes for distance learners. Admission in these programmes is done twice in a year i.e. January and July sessions. Keeping pace with the changing technological environment and need of the hour, IGNOU has designed and developed an Online Admission System (OAS)which was launched in May 2015. Besides certain innovative features, the new system of admission is student friendly, cost effective and time saving on the part of the students as well as the university. However, being the new and technology based system of admission, the OAS has certain limitations and challenges also. In order to get the first hand feedback and to investigate learners’ perspective, an analytical study of the OAS has been done. Besides analysing the responses of the users on various components of the online admission, the present paper has also analysed the technological preference of the students. The result spurs interesting insights into the online admission system and suggests the scope of improvement in the OAS.
