The full-time faculty is of two types, again (i) full-time core faculty on a permanent basis to maintain and coordinate the essential functions (ii) full-time contractual staff for job-specific requirements. Part-time faculty may be used for development and delivery of instructional materials, and other related academic activities. 2. Self-Instructional Material Self-instructional material is different than Text-Books. High quality SIM is essential. As far as possible SIM must be supported by A/V material. 3. Physical Facilities and Equipment An institution should have requisite infrastructure facilities at a) headquarters and b) support service centers. 4. Library Every distance education institution should have a well equipped library at headquarters with good collections of books, journals/periodicals, audio, video tapes and other electronic media learning materials to serve the need of staff and learners. 5. Computer Facilities In view of the large number of learners per programme, the institutions should plan computerisation and use of technology from the beginning. The number of computers required may vary from institution to institution depending upon the activities undertaken. 6. Access to ICT networks for Programme Delivery.
