School of Online Learning : About


Welcome to the School of Online Learning at Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU), where innovation meets education. Our mission is to provide accessible, flexible, and high-quality education to learners from all walks of life, empowering them with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in today’s dynamic world.

Online education is a process of gaining skills and knowledge through electronic devices such as computers, mobiles, and laptops, using the internet. This mode of education allows tutors or mentors to teach students more flexibly and efficiently, providing relevant skills and knowledge. (Ruth C. Clark, 2016)

Students who cannot attend classroom sessions daily due to various reasons now can learn from their own place through online education. This approach allows for 24-hour study access, overcoming challenges such as network issues through mobile technology. In online education, knowledge is transferred through audio, text, video, animations, and chats with tutors, leading to the enhancement of learners' skills and knowledge.

Online education has gained significant importance in recent times. Many individuals pursue their professional development by enrolling in various courses, which they can complete from the comfort of their homes. In this context, online learning has become highly relevant and essential.
