SMU-DE has created a powerful model for teaching and evaluation. Our University provides distance education to thousands of students across the country, pursuing graduate and post-graduate programs across several disciplines.
We are committed to improving the quality of our distance education programs. We also aim to provide a learning experience that is superior to traditional campus-based programs. Our main focus is to evaluate the students performance through a robust system. Our distance learning experience comes with flexibility and convenience along with academic rigour.
Students are expected to complete and submit internal assessments on a regular basis, which aid in better understanding of subject modules.
The assignments form a part of continuous evaluation and internal assessment (IA) marks will be awarded based on the assignments assessed by the University. The assignments are designed to encourage the students to develop the habit of continuous study of the subject throughout the semester.
All assignments will be assessed by the University central pool of faculties which includes the approved academic counsellors. Student must submit one assignment in each subject to the University. The assignment questions will be uploaded for each student at edunxt.smude.edu.in.
