The Directorate is responsible for offering programmes/courses through the distance mode. Since inception, it has been taking various initiatives to the spread of distance education.

Dr. Harendra Singh, then Controller of examinations, L.N.M.U Darbhanga was the first Director in-charge of the Directorate of Distance Education. The task assigned to him was to formulate and prepare the proposal for starting Distance Education from session 1998-99, in consultation with the Advisory Committee which was duly constituted by the University.
I am very glad to announce that we have this new website that will provide you your all required information about DDE.
DDE is an integral part of the Temple of Learning Lalit Narayan Mithila University Darbhanga which is an outcome of the cherished desire of the people of this region. Eminent academicians like Dr. Amarnatha Jha, Dr. R.C. Mazumdar, Dr. A. S. Altekar, Dr. Sunit Kumar Chaterjee and many others had expressed their view in favour of the establishment of modern University at Darbhanga. The demand was voiced time and again on the floors of the state legislatures and in the Parliament. On the 27th January, 1947 (Vasantpanchami Day) at a meeting of some of the leading citizens of Darbhanga and Laheriasarai, the Mithila University committee was constituted with Dr. Amarnatha Jha as the President and Pandit Harinath Mishra as the General Secretary.
