It’s mostly an opinion: who loves Microsoft’s world will tell you that asp.net is better even for job opportunities… who prefers the rest, will say that php is better and will point you the huge amount of sites done with php (and open source cms and so on…), which are more than asp sites. Ever since Microsoft has come up with ASP.net, there has been a widespread debate among programmers as to whether it is any better than the existing open source programming language of PHP.

If you were to make a search on the Internet on how loyalists of both PHP and ASP.net are doing almost everything by biting each other’s heads off, you will realize how hot this debate actually is. The major contention is that Microsoft products are generally considered to be superior to other products, but then there are programmers that have been using PHP since ages and never once has it let them down. While there is acclaim for ASP.net being more robust and speedier, PHP fans maintain that PHP has much better support and a very easy to understand language.

As the debate between PHP and ASP.net rages on, it is important to make a frank comparison between the two languages, so that other developers who are not so strong in their opinions are not caught in the argument between the two.

Both are better, both are Faster and both can write any kind of program. Asp.net supports a huge framework and has many built components and has a grate editing environment (Visual Studio ) through which you can easily write Asp program without worrying about case sensitivity, while PHP editing tool is work such like a notepad. For what a programmer need much strong programming knowledge and syntax.

PHP is easy to learn.  PHP has a wider community.  PHP is not too true to OOP (Object Oriented Programming).

.NET may be tricky at first for beginners.  .NET is very true to OOP.  .NET community is always up to date with the new trends and changes.

PHP can run on almost all platforms. NET will require windows with .NET framework.

PHP is better for those who feel close to PHP and have worked on it for years.  .NET is better for those who have love for windows.  It’s an individuals liking or choice of the programming language they want to use.  PHP is better in its own world and .NET is better in its own arena.

1 Higher education aspirants have many choices — from the national open university to 14 state open varsities

2 Most of the institutes will have placement cells, so finding a job will not be a problem later

3 If you apply for a course to an open learning institute, ensure they have study centres near your place

4 The location of the university’s examination centre also counts if you are unable to travel long distances. Ensure the universities have centres in your city

5 If you have applied for a regular college and are also studying from an open university, ensure that your examination dates do not clash. You will have huge problems if they do

6 Find out when the open universities schedule their personal contact programme (PCP) classes. Most of them hand out study material and get in some of their best faculty members for lectures. Missing the classes don’t make sense

7 More on PCPs: These help you network and link with other students in your programme. Peer learning in the absence of regular teachers or classes, trading notes, chatting online with the friends you’ve made in PCP classes can aid your studies

8 Language is important: If you are applying to an open university in another state, check the medium of instruction for your course





The open and distance learning (ODL) mode of study gives you a bouquet of choices – from a  pottery course, a vocational and entrepreneurial programme in beekeeping, to a qualification in sericulture and a diploma in fish processing. Whether you are a student wanting to take up a job along with an undergraduate degree, a lawyer wishing to pursue a qualification in history, a teacher with a love for plantation, an engineer aiming for an MBA, or a homemaker planning to study economics, you can follow your ambition through the ODL mode. This system gives you the flexibility and choice to join a course irrespective of who you are or where you are based.


ODL scenario
Globally, the major types of institutions/universities offering education through the ODL mode include dedicated open universities that offer programmes only through distance mode and dual style universities set up to provide correspondence courses. Another category is that of institutions offering conventional classroom-based programmes, distance education qualifications and online education.

According to RK Gupta, former member of the Distance Education Council, “Distance learning offers education at an affordable cost. There are many meritorious students who cannot afford to pursue higher education. Not everyone can study in cities like Delhi and Mumbai… a large number of students belong to remote and rural areas and cannot go to a regular college. The ODL system offers hope and opportunities to these aspirants.”

Gupta says that majorly, there are three types of students who prefer to join the ODL mode. These include those who don’t get into regular colleges, those who are working and want to pursue conventional or professional courses, and those who are otherwise eligible but cannot afford regular education.

As per the NR Madhava Menon Committee report on ODL, ODL constitutes about 21.9% of total enrolment in the conventional system. However, enrolment in technical and professional courses in the ODL system is less than 10%.

The enrolment in open universities and distance education institutions in 2009-10 was more than 36 lakh. The share of distance education increased from 2.6% in 1975-76 to 8.9% in 1985-86 and was improved to 10.7% in 1990-91 and to 20.56% in 2008-09.

Student support
When it comes to the methods and tools used to impart education, the ODL system has come a long way. From a correspondence degree based on print material to self-instructional study packages with an integrated multi-media approach, virtual learning has got a boost. The application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to provide flexible and cost-effective programmes has also made this system popular.

Challenges ahead
The ODL system is now growing faster compared to the conventional system. “One of the major challenges that need to be addressed is quality assurance and use of an innovative approach to impart education. Steps like providing access to video lectures by top faculty of the top institutions will solve the problem of giving access to higher education to each student. Students should also check the recognition of the institution, course material and quality of the programme before enrolling,” says Sudhanshu Bhushan, professor, higher and professional education, National University of Education Planning and Administration, who specialises in policy analysis and planning of higher education.

“The growth and access to ICT will revolutionise higher education.  E-learning modules, multimedia case studies, video tutorials need to be given a push,” he adds.
