Employers on online education - CNN.com

Employers on online education - CNN.com | Digital Education Strategies | Scoop.it
Going back to school is an appealing option for many people, but they can't afford to quit their jobs to be a full-time student. If this sounds familiar, there might be a solution that allows you to go to school and continue working: an online or distance-learning program.
Naza Djafarova's insight:

“83 percent of executives in the survey say that an online degree is as credible as one earned through a traditional campus-based program. Employers said such factors as the accreditation of the college or university, the quality of its graduates and the name of the institution awarding the degree were among other things they considered to make an online degree more credible. ”

Naza Djafarova's insight:

SAN MATEO, Calif.: New Study Asserts Online Education Can Revolutionize U.S. Workforce | Business Press Releases | Fort Mill Times | Digital Education Strategies | Scoop.it
With higher-education debt swelling to a record $1.2 trillion, new emphasis is being placed not only on the cost of tuition but also on students’ ability to secure jobs upon graduation. Yet a recent Gallup Poll shows only 11 percent of business leaders believe graduates have the requisite skills for success in the workforce, leaving many of them under-employed or unemployed and unable to repay their student loans. Despite this trend, few universities or colleges have been able to adapt to the shifting demand for specialized workforce skills.

Who uses MOOCs and how? | Digital Education Strategies | Scoop.it

Given that millions of people register for MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), it is perhaps not surprising that much has been written to date about these still-evolving education platforms.

But what do we know about who is enrolled in MOOCs? Or how these platforms are (or aren’t) supporting learning? In today’s article we take a look at some fresh studies from the field to sketch out early observations about the usage and impacts of MOOCs. http://ow.ly/zrs0H
