ODL resources and Internet radio
Internet radio is fast becoming a tool for conveying messages, entertainment and education due to the advances in data compression, broad band penetration and newer mobile gadgets. But ODL institutions barring a few like UKOU or OUM, have ignored this cost effective easy tool. Subscribing to Portals which offer of free bandwidth and then switching over to commercial rates hindered the progress of this medium. In India the National Institute of open Schooling (NIOS), the Yashwant Rao chavan Maharastra open university (YCMOU), and the KK Handique Stateopen university (KKSOU) Assam were selected by the author to experiment on an unique PPP model from July 2012. The internet streaming combined with an IVRS enabled mobile streaming, as well as development of mobile APPS helped to reach unreachables in distant areas without any significant expenditure. The streaming which uses the spare audio of TV channel sreaming sites seems to be the most economical way of tele counseling in ODL institutions. In fact NIOS is running a 24 hr service with hardly spending 2000 USD inclusive of staff salary etc. This paper will discuss the modus operandi of this unique PPP model and the outcomes achieved during the past 12 months // Paper ID: 96
