NICOE was intended to be a medium of making education easy for students who are unable to attend regular classes.The challenge before us was to make the instruction. delivery of curriculum convenient and as effective as regular classes for the students. It had to be a will-planned and organized extended learning endeavor which allowed students to pursue other activities without affecting their learning. reaching out the them through the online medium was an excellent way to deliver educational resources and nullify the location constraint. The national policy on Education suggested strengthening of NICOE for extending open learning facilities in a phased manner and pri secondary and pri sr. secondary & vocational levels all over the country and abroad as a independent system with its own curriculum and examination leading to awarding of certificate. This was intended to the address the needs of students on working professionals in India and abroad to further the cause of spreading education. NICOE offers a viable and convenient approch for education as comprehensive study material is delivered online after admission.The process of admission is simple too as students only need to register online and get admitted with the enrollment number sent right away.The instructional resources made available to the students are without the bottleneck of language.They have the option to choose the language.of their study material.The results of pass students are backed by online verification. Spreading the case of making education convenient through the internet was novel initiative suggested by the National policy on Education and we took this opportunity to start NICOE.They way our instructional deliver and online facilitation of educational courses have expanded in India and abroad, It is a fulfillment of our aspiration to play a pivotal role on making education convenient for students all over the world.
