The CCRT trains in-service teachers by organizing various training programmes. A constant need is felt to increase the number of trained teachers. Distance Learning which provides access of learning when the source of information in the learning are separate by time and distance of both seems to be an ideal solution. CCRT mooted the idea of starting a Distance Learning Programme.
The Centre has been recording the lectures/lecture-demonstration/panel discussions of prominent scholars, artists and educationists with the help of Central Institute of Educational Technology (CIET). These recordings has also been used for the programmes conducted through Distance Learning mode. The CCRT in collaboration with State Education Department/RIE’s/Colleges of Education has also started conducting training for in-service/pre-service teachers under Distance Learning Programmes.
