Secondary education in general and ODL at secondary level in particular is an under-researched area in India. It would be possible for ODL to assume a major responsibility in improving gross enrolment at secondary level only if there is an understanding of how it presently operates, and if gaps in its working are identified. No clear and comprehensive research exists at present in this area.
Two major questions that this CBPS research project seeks to answer are:
Conference Papers/ Presentations:
Film on Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in Secondary Education
A video was also created to present the major findings of the study.
CBPS Annual Seminar Presentations:
1. Major findings from the preliminary analysis was presented at our Annual Seminar 2015 and is available here.
2. Findings from primary data were shared during the Annual Seminar 2017 and is available here.
