Reach students with online ICT course

Reach students with online ICT course | My MOOC Issues & Resources | Scoop.it

There were 16,600 unfilled ICT vacancies in September and the figures suggest that some unemployed ICT workers may lack skills currently in demand. MOOCs may be a useful way of allowing ICT staff to upgrade their skills cost-effectively. This would be true particularly if there were a way of independently establishing the quality of the MOOCs.

The low number of domestic ICT graduates also highlights a crisis in our ability to persuade young people to enter the ICT industry.

We must reach students in school before they decide on their university applications as the ICT courses taught in many schools are clearly not enticing students into ICT, and some schools are not well resourced to teach ICT. Developing a MOOC aimed at school students, with support from the industry, might be a novel and successful way of reaching them.
