The University of Mumbai has finally learnt a lesson from last year's admission and exam-related goof-ups. This year, admissions to the Institute of Distance and Open Learning (IDOL) may not be done via the Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL). Admissions will not only be done through a portal, three options are being considered, including MKCL, but also will be decentralized and around 20 colleges will now act as IDOL's study centres. A meeting was held on Tuesday, 10th July, 2012 with officials from IDOL and the varsity to discuss the admission strategy for distance education programmes.
An official said, "There were a lot of goof-ups last year. Besides technical issues, the rate quoted by MKCL is 125 to fill each form online. So, MU is looking at other options besides MKCL. The contract for admissions may go to another portal." Last year, admissions were done at MKCL centres. Students filled their forms from MKCL centres. This year, 20 colleges will act as study centres to help students in admissions. Pro vice-chancellor N Chandra said, "IDOL admissions will be decentralized this year. We are considering three options and MKCL is one of them." But no decision has been taken on which portal will conduct the admissions.
Yogita Rao The final names of colleges will soon be shortlisted. Students from far off places under university's jurisdiction need not travel all the way to IDOL in Kalina campus." However, there is no decision taken on which portal will be conducting the admissions yet. "We are considering three options and MKCL is also one of them. The final decision will be taken soon. MKCL is carrying out the online enrollment process of all students in our affiliated colleges," said Naresh Chandra. An official however claimed that a reputed portal working for e-governance in the state is under consideration.
