To make learning easy, the methods of teaching are also modified to fit the requirement of students. The concept of online library, virtual classrooms along with experiential learning methodology helps students to enjoy the learning process in their convenient time and place.

Virtual Classroom: this enables the students to view and learn directly from the lectures delivered and presented through internet based two- way audio-video. This method of teaching and learning has been proved quite pragmatic and very helpful to the students.

Online Video Library: Students can access lecture-videos on relevant topics by experts on "WE TUBE", the online video library. Industry visits and business simulation games also play a significant role in grooming the students for the industry.

Experiential Learning Methodology: One of the most favourite method of teaching and learning as observed in the Welingkar Distance Learning Program is the Experiential Learning Methodology. Students are taken to site trips to Sahayadri/ the Himalayas and are trained and made to perform various tasks, which are designed to test perseverance, leadership-skill, team-work ability, decision-making, problem solving and thinking ability of students and guide them through the area of weakness.
