Abstract

PCF1 // Open learning as an alternative to formal campus based education is a personalized course of supervised study, which can lead to a recognized academic award. Need and significance of this system of non-formal education can not be over-emphasized for a developing country like Pakistan facing huge financial constraints and committed to development in the shortest possible time. In fact, open learning system of non-formal education intends to teach those who are quite out of the formal education. There is an urgent need to think on vital issues and subjects of national importance in the universities of Pakistan and encouraging them to faster mutually beneficial relationships with the well-known foreign universities specially those in USA, UK and the English speaking commonwealth countries. The successive governments in Pakistan have made scanty use of knowledge and expertise available in many universities for the shaping of decisions on national and international issues and the formulation of national development plans. This review study relating to the forum of open learning through distance education would make a greater contribution towards solving the education problems in Pakistan. //
