7 mitos y realidades sobre la formación online.

 

Mito nro. 1, no se puede obtener un empleo acreditando un diploma logrado mediante aprobación de cursos en línea.  Reaalidad: 62% de los profesionales de RRHH creen que los diplomas obtenidos por cursos online son equivalentes o mejores que los logrados en universidades tradicionales.

 

Mito nro 2, sólo universidades de dudosa reputación ofrecen programas que se imparten totalmente en línea. Realidad: el porcentaje de instituciones que ofrecen programas completamente virtuales se ha duplicado en la última década hasta alcanzar 62.4%.

 

Mito nro. 3, los programas virtuales contribuyen con el aislamiento de sus estudiantes. Realidad: los cursos distribuídos en el formato presencial tradicional pueden también incentivar el aislamiento.

 

Mito nro. 4, obtener un diploma en línea es tomar el camino fácil. Realidad: si bien es cierto que el formato eLearning es más flexible, ello no significa que los cursos dictados en ésta modalidad sean menos rigurosos.

 

Mito nro. 5, "Tengo todo el tiempo del mundo para culminar mi curso online". Realidad: si intenta retrazar indefinidamente el cumplimiento de las tareas asignadas en un curso online, muy problamente, no superá ese curso. La procastinación no funciona el mundo real ni en el virtual.

 

Mito nro. 6, usted no aprenderá mucho tomando cursos vía eLearning. Realidad: investigaciones recientes indican que no hay diferencias significativas entre los resultados de aprendizaje por estudios virtuales y el método presencial tradicional.

 

Mito nro. 7, puedo hacer fraude en los programas de formación online. Realidad: muchas escuelas online han implementado sistemas de protección antifraude. Algunas otras exigen la realización de exámenes presenciales a sus alumnos. ¡ El gran hermano siempre está observando...!
