In Open Learning, the face-to-face contact is very limited and
the learners are at a distance and the teaching methodology is
distance education mode. In such scenario, Open Schooling has to
depend heavily on the use of Information and Communication
Technology (ICT). The use of Information and Communication
Technology (ICT) is much more relevant in case of Open Schooling by
its very character. UPSOSB has made the optimum utility of ICT in
almost all of its activities and programmes. Under the programmes
and activities of the Uttar Pradesh State Open School Board (UPSOSB),
Information and Communication Technology is being used as a major
strategy towards reaching the unreached and management of UPSOSB.
The UPSOSB has come a long way in the forefront of ICT since it
made a small beginning with only two personal computers in 1989.
Over the years all necessary hardware and software infrastructure
were installed for computerization of UPSOSB activities.
Starting with a small Computer Unit with few numbers of
computers, it has reached to the level of full fledge Computer
Division with five units within it namely
- EDP Unit
- Internet & On-line Application Unit
- Software Development and Implementation Unit
- Networking & Maintenance Unit
- On-Demand Examination Unit.
