Chouhan Tara

Abstract—Broadly, the beginning of Distance Education for Computers dates back to 18th Century due to the phenomenal advancement and innovation in transportation and communication heralded by industrial revolution. DEC as alternative model of education started when technology made it feasible to separate teacher and learner from a fixed place, at a fixed time, to meet a fixed person, in order to be trained.
Started with correspondence mode, DEC is now agreed to have undergone notably four other stages namely multimedia mode, tele-learning model, flexible learning model and interactive flexible learning model. The proliferation suffices to prove why DEC has been so widely accepted in the western hemisphere and why European countries have established and recognized this method through EDEN.

Index Terms—Non-Resident Nepali Association, Open University Nepal, proliferated, two-fold availability.
