With the growing acceptance of the distance learning mode, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University, Ahemedabad is expected to further expand the reach of the common people to the higher education. As distance learning is a preferred mode of education for the working people and all those who can not afford to attend regular classes for some reason or the other, this open university in Gujarat has been a blessing. Although the medium of instruction in some of the courses is either Hindi or English, for majority of the courses it is Gujarati.

Today, Distance education has emerged as an effective method of learning and instruction. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University (BAOU) came into being in the year 1994.

These traditions inspired the establishment of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University (BAOU) in the State in the year 1994.

The BAOU therefore, has a fertile soil to plough and disseminate open learning through regional language at larger scale.
