How Online Education Will Meet the Needs of a Mobile Online Workforce
For over 10 years colleges have been implementing online offerings in order to reach out to their diverse student populations. College is part of a process where people learn how to work in virtual groups. In the past this as through face-to-face meetings but the future is likely to see more online groups and virtual work.
Students in online courses must be more self-motivated to succeed than in traditional colleges. They work at home, work, or even their living rooms. There are so many distractions in our natural environment that it is easy to fall away from the necessary work. These situations encourage greater discipline that mirrors virtual employment.
The use of the Internet, writing skills, online chat, video, email and texting make virtual world more unique than a traditional setting. Online education familiarizes students with what they need to be successful working in a virtual environment.
Online education is not a cure all for employment education but does offer some advantages to new virtual work environments. As students learn and complete tasks in the virtual world they become more adapted and skilled in these environments making such schools fertile grounds for recruitment. Independent and self-motivated employees should command market attention and interest.
