Historial Outline

BOU produces its course materials and runs its tutorial services by both print media and electronic media through Publishing, Printing and Distribution Division and Media Division respectively.

Print Media

The print media (books, readers’ guide books, journals, students’ handbooks etc.) plays a vital role in distance learning. The learners of all academic programs of BOU are provided with a complete set of textbooks written in modular form.

The preparation of modular form of textbooks is a long drawn process. A draft curriculum is prepared by faculty members. It is then placed before the Curriculum Committee and which is finally approved by the Academic Council. The course material production team then does the job of preparing the text and finally hands over the final manuscript to PPD. The last phase of printing of materials is taken care of by the Publishing, Printing and Distribution Division. The study package including modules and other printed materials are dispatched to Regional Resource Centers (RRC) and Local Centers (LC) for distribution among the students.

Electronic Media
