I take great pleasure in sending a message to the website of the Open University of Sri Lanka.
Our University with its objective of distant and open education, is constantly exploring modern technological techniques to impart reliable information for the benefit of our students. The OUSL is the only University in Sri Lanka that engages in educational activities adopting the Distant Education method and it is also a University in the National University system.
The Distant Education system embodies a large number of unique components and accessing teachers’ instructions via the internet is the most significant of them all.
The fifth generation of students of the OUSL are directed towards following study techniques via the internet thanks to open technology. Our aim is to broaden the horizons for them.
This year the OUSL completes 30 years. Founded in 1980, this University is heading for excellence, passing various milestones.
The message of open education has reached distant areas, consequent to bold experiments, teaching quite successfully Engineering and Natural Science technologies via distant education.
The education message of the University has spread out to distant areas through the network of provincial centres, rendering yeomen service to students of such areas.
The Open University which makes way for students of Sri Lanka to fulfill their higher education requirements is exploring what more is needed to be done.
I must state that our leadership and the staff are dedicated for this purpose.
