Abstract
The transformation of National Open School (NOS) to National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) in 2002 demands for new functions to be performed by NIOS in the area of training and research, apart from its academic functions of certification at secondary and senior secondary level. Also, the demands in the Open School system in India shall increase manifold in the coming years due to various schemes of the Government of India, and at such a juncture, this project is highly significant to the NIOS to rethink its operation and re-organize its administrative mechanisms to meet the challenges ahead. The Report critically assesses the current scenario of training and academic practices in the NIOS and three State Open Schools (in Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh) to make reflections in the light of contemporary distance education practices and new media practices in education.
