IGNOU introduces Environmental Course

Indira Gandhi National Open University — IGNOU has introduced a new course related to the study of environment called the ‘Appreciation Course on Environment’. This course would be offered from the session beginning in January 2009. The course would be enriched with technological inputs like use of multimedia and would be developed in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Forests. The course is aimed towards increasing environmental awareness and updating professionals in this regard including engineers, doctors, planners and in general, the citizens who are committed to the cause of environment and its conservation.

Eligibility for seeking admission to this course is graduation from a recognized university. The duration is only of three months and the language medium would be both in English and Hindi. The prospectus/admission information can be sought from —

Registrar SR&D, IGNOU, Maidan Garhi, New Delhi – 68.

Centre For History Awareness

The Central government is very keen on raising the knowledge about the nation’s glorious past among the children and youth. This realisation has come about as the nation’s history is looked upon as textbook subject by a majority of children. In fact, the recent trend indicates a shift of interest levels towards the history of the West, i.e. USA, even when the youth is totally ignorant of their own vast and glorious history. Such sentiments were expressed during the celebrations of the Bahadur Shah Zafar Birth Anniversary that was convened by the Centre for Freedom Struggle Studies, IGNOU.

There were three main points that were stressed upon. These included exhuming the mortal remains of the Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar, construction of a national monument in Delhi in honour of martyrs who had died fighting the British and updating the history books that tend to create an impression that Bahadur Shah Zafar had surrendered to the British. The forum felt that the correction of misplaced facts would also help to strengthen the Hindu-Muslim harmony.

Initiative by IGNOU in J & K

IGNOU has launched a drive to divert the attention of youth in the troubled state of Jammu and Kashmir. Indira Gandhi National Open University, IGNOU’s Special Study Centre in Bhalessa — the winter capital of J&K, has taken an initiative to motivate the youth of Jammu & Kashmir towards education and employment. The Study Centre plans to conduct numerous seminars, debates and campaigns in sync with the NSWA — National Students Welfare Association. This is a first in J&K’s history for any NGO to undertake such an enterprising plan.

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s North-Eastern Initiative

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has decided to set up centres of Gandhi Institution of Information Technology or the GIIT at Guwahati and Jorhat in Assam and other regional centres in Kohima, Agartala, Shillong and Gangtok. BVB already boasts of 30 GIITs all over the country and has become a recognised brand in the field of affordable IT education with its centres spread in Asia and even Europe.

This is being done as a part of an initiative to provide subsidised or free IT education to the students of north-eastern parts of India. These centres aim to provide three months of free IT education to the local youth in these regions in the beginning. The institutes are being funded by the Prime Minister’s Special Fund.

Online Acupuncture Course from IGNOU

The Indira Gandhi National Open University, IGNOU has once again pioneered the cause of making education more accessible and has launched an online diploma programme in the study of Acupuncture. This is perhaps the first time that a medical diploma is being offered online. However, the students would be assisted with contact classes for practical training purposes.

The course is due to commence from November, 2008. The programme would have to be completed in a minimum period of 1 year and a maximum period of 3 years. The curriculum has been set up in collaboration with the Institute of Acupuncture & Natural Medicines, IANM, New Delhi. The programme would be available to medical graduates from various streams including those from allopathy, ayurveda and homeopathy. This initiative from IGNOU makes sense as the requirement for professional acupuncturists is growing by the day.
