Open and Distance Learning (ODL) at secondary education level provides the platform to pursue education for those who face such barriers. The structure of ODL in India includes National Institute of Open School (NIOS) that operates nationally and State Open Schools (SOS) that operate in respective states. Main advantages of the ODL system are the accessibility and flexibility in Admission, Academic Support, Examination and Certification.
