As everyone knows, Education Domain in India and elsewhere in the world is in a very transient phase witnessing changes almost every day, whether it is the Academic process, Teaching Strategy, Model, Curriculum, type of co-curricular and extracurricular activities, the administrative process, statutory regulations and above all, the technology tools for each of the above components.

The Past decade has seen a phenomenal increase in the number of Educational Institutions across India, from schools to Universiti swhich has resulted in a competitive environment wherein the Student gets to benefit by way of having more choices and options. It has triggered a struggle for existence among the various Educational Institutions and only the best Institutions which constantly upgrade their service to the students prevail and grow.

At Cus Delight, we very much understand this and have a very well experienced team of Educational Consultants and Technical Architects who have designed and developed robust, innovative and futuristic Technology solutions for the entire spectrum of Education Industry.

For Open and Distance Learning Management (For Open Universities and Directorates of Distance Education)

Managing an open University or a distance education division of a university is a very challenging affair because of the nature of processes involved in the day to day operations and also due to
 the unique procedures involved
 multiple communication channel requirement
 level of interactivity to be provided to the students
 coordination with various learning centers
 the geographical spread of the students
 material production and distribution
 the number of students being handled
 and above all the sheer volume of data being processed

Is governance of a open university/Distance Education Division, a conventional university and a business organization very similar?

Definitely not! While there might be certain similarities between how these three entities are governed, often the governance of a open university or a distance education division is a combination of a conventional university management and a business enterprise management.

It is a combination of academic management, professional services management and an enterprise management

This is more so because, some of the operations performed by an open university or a distance education division are related to enterprise management and some are related to academic & professional services management.

What kind of IT solution is best suited for open Universities and Distance Education Divisions ?

It is a proven, accepted fact that the role of ICT in
  reducing the complexity of management procedures
  increasing the flexibility to the management
  streamlining the entire management process
  improving the operational effectiveness
  ensuring data accuracy and security
  ensuring information availability in the right format at the right time and
  providing multiple, parallel communication channels between the students, Centers and University is appreciable.

But, what kind of an IT solution is a big question.
Can a proven Enterprise Resource planning Solution(ERP) be customized and used? or
Will an off-the-shelf University management Solution (UMS) fit the bill? Or
Should we go for stand alone, discrete, small software solutions for different departments as per their requirement?

Not really !
