Abstract

Recognising the need to treat industry-relevant educational programmes as per the requirements and demands of industry, this paper discusses some of the approaches for incorporating technical and industry related skills within the self learning instructional materials, which is the main input for open distance learning students of developing countries. This is discussed under three broad headings – providing knowledge base, imparting technical skills and imbibing industry related skills – while emphasising the need for integration of all the three requirements. A wide array of tools and approaches is available for us to adopt. However, the power is not in the tool but in the user and in his/her ingenuity in using it. We need to see development of self learning instructional materials for transaction of technical and industry related skills from this point of view. It is concluded that this is an important area to be developed further as more and more industries are realising the power of knowledge capital and the importance of open and distance learning.
