The Distance Learning (DL) program is for those students who cannot attend classes on CASE campus. The centerpiece of the program is the provision of digitally recorded lectures, which, in the form of Video CDs, are mailed to DL students. These CDs provide the next best thing from actually being present in the lecture, allowing DL students to appreciate the live questions and answers and classroom discussions. The video screen consists of the topic, lecture contents, and lecture slides. For most classes, students also have access to an on-line forum, where their queries are answered and assignments are submitted through e-mail.
The students in the DL program have to meet all the degree requirements of on-campus students. Examinations are conducted at remote locations under the supervision of examiners provided by CASE. Students switching from on campus to DL status are charged DL charges.
