Due to the advancement of technological development in medical science and wider facilities and awareness for lifestyle modification, have bring tremendous change in older women. With the increase of life span, women’s desire for self-identity and recognized status has been developed. The purpose of this study is to understand and measure the motivation of 30+ women’s enrollment in distance education through Bangladesh Open University. Although programs of distance education meet the needs of adult learners who work and who have the career and family responsibilities (Tucker, 2000) it has been observed that most of the women who enroll in open learning programs in Bangladesh Open University , are 30+ years old. Many of them have household production matriarch. They have a major responsibility in the realm of running the household and managing its day-to-day requirements (e.g., cooking, cleaning, and child care, paying bills, and supervising home repairs) (Knowlton & Thomeczek, 2007). This group is between 30 and 60 years old and they have different perception and motivation from those whose age is suitable for traditional formal education. They have their own unique nature educational needs which bring them close to distance education and motivate them to continue education in this age after a break of certain period. // Paper ID 8
