Welcome to the India-Canada Conference on “Open and Flexible Distance Learning”. Open and Flexible Distance Learning Education is the foundation for lifelong learning and human development. Education should relate to the life, needs and aspirations of the people and then can become a powerful instrument of social, economic and cultural transformation necessary for realization of our national goals.

Open and Distance Learning (ODL) is an approach to learning that offers learners flexibility and choice over what, when, at what pace, where, and how they will learn, guided by some structure and support from an institution. Rapid advances in ICT have greatly influenced and changed the learning environment. The phenomenal development of the ICTs reduces place and time constraint. ICT has also revolutionized the delivery mechanisms. To satisfy the demands of an emerging sophisticated global knowledge society, and also the need for accessible, affordable quality education for all, open and flexible distance learning is gaining prominence.
