Abstract: This Paper is an attempt to understand the problems associated with education imparted in distance learning mode by Bhoj Open University, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. The paper also deals with the tentative possible solutions to minimise the problems. A study was conducted on 80 students of 2centres of different regions and data was collected related to hub and 40 SIT’s (i.e. BER (Bit Error Rate), Bandwidth, number of operation days, number of recorded and live lectures telecasted) to understand the nature of the various problems. A detailed analysis was performed using SPSS 22.0 on the primary data collected. On the basis of observations and interpretation of the analysis the present study attempts to categories the problems and suggests possible solutions to make the education imparted though edusat satellite more effectively.
Keywords: Edusat – Satellite dedicated for education, SIT – Satellite. Interactive terminals, BER – Bit Error Rate, Bandwidth – the amount of data that can be carried from one point to another in given time period. (Usually a second).
