DGET commences distance learning through satellite

NEW DELHI: Lectures are to be telecast for two hours everyday from the studios of the Vishveswaraiah Technological University (VTU) Studio in Bangalore following the launch of the satellite-based distance learning in the Vocational Training System.

The programme has been launched by the Directorate General of Employment and Training (DGET) using the EDUSAT satellite in the labour ministry on a pilot basis.


The lectures are being transmitted to 12 Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) being covered under the Centres of Excellence (COE) scheme of DGET in Karnataka. The pilot programme is also being received in a number of other locations in the southern states.

The lectures cover subjects like life skills and engineering drawing.

The Central Government is the nodal agency for monitoring, supervision and coordination of vocational training in the country.

Highlighting the importance of introducing distance-learning programme in the Vocational Training System in the country, union labour secretary Sudha Pillai said while inaugurating the pilot programme that widely disbursed locations could be covered in shortest possible time through the project. She emphasized that this system can ensure uniformity of content, control on the quality, repeatability of the lecture content and sharing of the network by other user groups.

Director General of Employment and Training Sharda Prasad said the pilot programme has been launched to test the technology in the Vocational Training System and DGET also proposed to introduce it in all the ITI s of the country by setting up a National Studio at the Apex Hitech Institute in Bangalore and Regional Studios in different parts of the country in a phased manner.
