Abstract
It is generally accepted that in distance training programmes, materials have a crucial role in teaching and learning. Materials should harmonize with learners’ current and changing perceptions of their needs. Only then can it be estimated how well the materials serve the learners as the route towards target language knowledge and language capabilities which will equip them to meet their present and future language needs. In India the Education commission (1964-66) recommended opening supplementary channels for clearing the backlog of untrained teachers through summer courses, vacation courses, part time courses and correspondence courses. During sixties another channel, i.e. correspondence course was introduced. The correspondence-cum-contact mode was considered suitable especially for teachers of the secondary school stage. In order to institutionalize this mode of teacher training, several institutes started different programmes through the correspondence-cum-contact mode. Various correspondence courses in use now and have been well-received by both the learners and teachers.
