|Abstract:||Distance education at IIT Bombay is carried out through live and free transmission of its own courses, through satellite, video conference and webcast. Distance education is a partial solution to improve the dismal state of engineering education in India. Optionally, the transmission is also available under value added modes, using powerful features, such as, video course on demand and the learning management system, moodle. A brief description of the nonthesis master's degree, known as postgraduate diploma of IIT Bombay, PGDIIT, available through the distance mode, is given. The article concludes with a summary of the national programme on technology enhanced learning, NPTEL, a joint effort of all IITs and IISc. The students, staff and faculty of IIT Bombay enthusiastically support distance education.|
