Introduction of the YCMOU

Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU) Nashik stands as a prominent pioneer in the realm of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in India. With an annual enrolment exceeding 500,000 students, the university offers a diverse array of courses, cementing its position as a trailblazer in the field.

Recognitions and Awards:

YCMOU, located in Nashik, has been honored with the Award of Institutional Excellence by the Commonwealth of Learning (CoL) Canada, the apex body of open and distance learning universities in Commonwealth countries. The prestigious award was presented to then Vice Chancellor Prof. E. Vayunandan and Registrar Dr. Dinesh Bhonde on September 11th at the Ninth Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning held in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The citation appraises YCMOU for the Application of modern technology in education for reaching the unreached, for Innovative use of technology from student registration to certification, Setting goals for sustainable development, skill development, and employability of the students. YCMOU is maintaining consistency in honest efforts since 2002 when the ‘excellence’ was awarded to this university for the first time.

Objectives of the course:

Yoga is one of the six major Darshans of Indian Culture which has gained tremendous popularity in the last three decades over the globe and exponential growth has been seen after the declaration of the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF YOGA by the United Nations (UN) in 2014. Psychiatric and Psychosomatic disorders have seen a steep rise in 21 century. To achieve sustainable development goals, the health of the population should be ensured. Yoga offers positive changes at physical, mental, and social levels though it is meant for the spiritual growth of a person. There is a huge demand for qualified Yoga Teachers over the globe. YCMOU’s Diploma in Yogashikshak course is designed to fulfill this demand. CBSE has made compulsory Yoga training from 6th standard to 12th standard in every school across the country and Ayush Ministry has started giving Yoga education to patients at primary health centers (PHCs) through the Arogyavardhini project all over India. If Maharashtra govt. makes compulsory for Yoga teachers in every school, then there will be a significant shortage of qualified Yoga teachers. Yoga is complementary in Health, Management, Education, Sports, Humanities, and every walk of life as its definition is योगः कर्मसु कौशलम् । (dexterity in action is called Yoga).
