It gives me immense pleasure to mark the formal launching of the Open and Distance Learning programme of Assam Agricultural University. This auspicious moment of a new beginning will be remaining unique in the journey of the university..
The Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode of education is a new initiative by Assam Agricultural University (AAU-ODL). It has been started working with the objectives to provide holistic agricultural knowledge and skill amongst different categories of learners including farmers, entrepreneurs, rural women as well as unemployed youths, employees of Government/private sectors, field service proiders, and school dropouts etc. The overall aim is 'reaching the unreached'.
