Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) occupies a unique position amongst universities and institutions of higher learning in the country. It was established in 1920 and evolved out of the Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental (MAO ) which was set up on 7 January 1877 by the great visionary and social reformer, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.

Centre For Distance and Online Education (CDOE)

The Centre for Distance and Online Education is an integral part of the University and an expression of the University’s concern and commitment for the spread of education in all strata of society and all parts of the country. The desire and demand for education exist in every section of society, but since Colleges and Universities cannot accommodate beyond a defined limit, many cannot find admission. There is also a large section of society that is unable to participate in the regular/ formal stream of education due to occupational, financial, or social constraints. Persons like these can get an opportunity to derive the benefits of education through online mode.

By taking advantage of recent developments in information and communication technologies to widen the reach of education and to enhance the quality of education through the use of multi-media methods of teaching and learning, the Centre aims at providing the students an opportunity to learn and appear for the examination of various courses which will be conducted by the University. Adopting flexible and innovative methods of education to ensure ‘independent learning’ to anyone, anytime and anywhere, the Centre offers programs of the study that are customized to meet the learning requirements of knowledge seekers as well as to ensure that they learn at their own pace and convenience. Within the financial means of University, due care has been taken to keep the cost of education low so that educationally backward sections can take advantage of University’s programs. The Centre for Distance and Online Education has a special commitment to the cause of Women’s education, particularly of the minority community, among those who are educationally and economically deprived section. Given an opportunity to study at home supported with study materials, women can benefit immensely from this program.
