GMVSS 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 instructional. delivery of curriculum convenient and as effective as regular classes for the students. It had to be a well-planned and organized extended learning endeavor which allowed students to pursue other activities without affecting their learning. Reaching out to 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 GMVSS for extending open learning facilities in a phased manner at secondary and Sr. Secondary levels all over the country and abroad as an independent system with its own curriculum and examination leading to awarding of certificates. This was intended to address the needs of students on working professionals in India and abroad to further the cause of spreading education. GMVSS offers a viable and convenient approach for education as comprehensive study material is delivered online after admission.
