The concept of correspondence course has given new impetus to those who are unable to attend the campus schools or colleges to continue their studies. Correspondence course is particularly helpful for in service personnel and even for persons who for various other reasons are unable to physically attend the classes. The unique feature of correspondence course being although the teacher and taught are separated by distance yet they are connected to each other with the help of internet. The teacher sends the lessons through internet, conducts video classes through internet and the student submits his assignment through internet and many times even the examination is conducted online. Interestingly, some of the professional courses like nursing are also conducted online! As a matter of reminisces, before the advent of internet, lessons and assignments were sent by post and the examination was being conducted at various designated places.
Correspondence course has now become the order of the day and now these courses are available in innumerable disciplines. The question is choosing the course that is suitable for you.

They are the religious texts and interestingly apart from religion they also deal with issues relating to science, social order, politics etc. Mathematics is one of the issues elaborately dealt with in the Vedas.

The Vedic Mathematics is based on 16 principles also called as Sutras.
From the time Vedic Mathematics was reintroduced to the modern world by Sri Bharati Krishna Thirthaji it has particularly become popular among the student community. As you may be aware many of the students are averse to mathematics for the simple reason it involves lot of complicated calculations and they also feel that it is very difficult to memorize the various formulas. It is for this reason that many of the students have developed a sort of phobia towards mathematics. Some of the students feel that even after taking the help of calculators they continue to experience the difficulty in calculations. Interestingly, if you adopt the Vedic Mathematics principle a problem can be solves in less than 1/3rd time which is normally taken through conventional method.

It’s weird how a person might be able to recall what was said to him years ago but unable to recall what he saw just a moment ago. Another boy remembers what page number of the particular book contains what information on what paragraph, but whatever said to him is quickly forgotten. Different brains are wired differently and different sensations appeal differently to different people. It all depends upon our dominant sense. We all have five of them, namely, the sense of sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste, but for each one of us, one sense works more than the other.
Rohan might be able to remember almost all the things he hears, he is an ear-minded person. Zohra is said to have a photographic memory, she can recollect whatever she saw, just like a photograph at the back of her mind, she is eye-minded. On the other hand, Pramod doesn’t remember whatever he hears or sees, until he writes it or derives it or whatever he can do on paper, so he is a mechanical or tactile-minded boy. Similarly we all are different and we all have different ways of sending things to our minds and stacking them into permanent memory.

The philosophy of education in India and Abroad:
There is no second opinion to the fact that education forms the cornerstone upon which the progress of any country depends. The approach towards education in the west is that of specialization in the field of interest for the student. Westerners believe that education is a process of learning and they adopt a policy of wait and see; wait for an opportunity to get into the job you have specialized. As a comparison,it is not so in India where education is aimed at getting the job at the earliest point of time.
Educationists point out that western culture is such that students are allowed to choose their career and parents have little say in the decision that a student would take. On the other hand, the education always gives emphasis on practical session, not to say that theory is ignored. With the emphasis on practical session the class rooms, laboratories and the libraries in the western countries are very well equipped.
This practical session helps the student Read more…
