Cloud Computing for Regional Services in Open Schooling
Regional Services are an important part of an open and distance learning system. The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) is a national institute in India providing school education and a host of Vocational and life enrichment programs through open learning mode. The Regional Services of NIOS are always overburdened with a lot of work related to propagation of open schooling, admissions, examinations, programs and research, and administration and accounts. Regional Services need to work closely with the study Centers and the headquarters to fulfill their responsibilities. Often the regional services are poorly staffed and work suffers a great deal because of non-availability of professional staff leading to stress related diseases to the Regional Directors. // In order to strengthen the services at the Regional Center, which requires attending to the problems of the students and supporting activities and at the Study Centers, and other related work involving collection of data, data entry, checking of data, communications with learners and study center coordinator, etc., one of the Regional Centers of NIOS experimented with cloud computing in the area of data entry, checking of data, preparation of database, automation of work, management of task at the Regional Center, supporting study Centers in their working, supporting learners with their problems etc. This paper discussed various issues and possibilities with the use of cloud computing in the management of regional services in open schooling. // Paper ID: 43
