Online support by IGNOU
The Covid-19 lockdown and social distancing norms have led IGNOU to use social media, FM radio and television channels like Gyan Vani and Gyan Darshan to reach out to students and provide them adequate support and information.
Like other schools and colleges, IGNOU is also holding online classes. It is also offering online certificate courses, and providing self-learning material, whether in multimedia or print formats.

On Friday, IGNOU decided to promote the UG and PG intermediate year and intermediate semester students in the June TEE 2020.
However, the varsity clarified that this promotion provision wouldn’t be applicable to students enrolled in programmes offered through agreements and collaborations with external agencies or approved from regulatory bodies or professional in nature.
