Online education has been hailed by some politicians and higher education experts as an innovation with the potential to deliver courses and degrees to students who might not otherwise attend college at a fraction of the typical cost. I extend my hearty welcome to all those who are seeking admission to the various PG and Ph.D programmes, Integrated PG programme, PG Diploma programmes and the inter-disciplinary Post Doctoral Research Programmes of Pondicherry University. Hundreds of studies comparing the outcomes of courses taught in person versus online have arrived at the same conclusion: no significant difference.
They can visit the State Higher Education Executive Officers Organization (SHEEO) online to review a list of each state’s regulatory agencies.
