The importance of online education in today’s busy world is not hyperbole. I have seen it over and again. People who could afford to go back to school for a new skill set are doing so. Students graduating high school without the skill set to secure a job are taking advantage of the online alternatives. These are great tools and are helping those who have a little time and need to sharpen their skill set.
I am an educator and have seen students over the years graduate high school, find jobs, and be success stories. The online world is providing students opportunities to sharpen their skill sets and prepare for the world that they have likely seen coming but never believed in. The online world is helping fill the knowledge void that many students have faced after graduation. The online world offers students the flexibility to pursue their passion and make their choices. The online world offers a wide selection of courses from a wide variety of subjects and interests. The online world provides an opportunity for students to explore new career paths.
Many who have been laid off or have not experienced the benefits of education may not realize the importance and value of online courses. These are students that do not know where to turn to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to secure a job. These are students that have dropped out of school because they could not afford it (which is a very real problem). In the end, these students did not learn anything and these are all graduates that are struggling to find gainful employment. The value of online learning is in delivering these classes for nothing. In doing so, these classes are providing new students the confidence and the knowledge they need to secure a job.
I would love to hear your stories of successes and future dreams.
