Why online education is mostly a fantasy

Why online education is mostly a fantasy | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

"If you listen to the advocates of online learning, MOOCs and Internet-based courses will cure all of our education problems. Just hand out some Android tablets, stream some courses in Python, and sit back and watch as everyone magically becomes a highly productive knowledge worker propelling the United States to new heights of economic prosperity. But this vision of online learning is so ridiculous I’m waiting for Ricardo Montalban to show up in a white suit and welcome these people to Fantasy Island."

Sharla Shults's insight:

Did this article ever hit home! While I am not an advocate of disbanning online learning, I do see extreme merit in a combination of online and face-to-face. Our daughter, Nicole, is presently working toward her Master's Degree in finance. While she has performed extremely well in both the classroom and online environments, she was told recently by one of her professors that she would have better success in landing that higher salaried job at the executive level if she allowed her education to venture outside the virtual into the real world. In other words, interact face-to-face with teachers, professors, students, for there is a plethora of learning to be made outside the boundaries of a keyboard! Afterall, when the education is complete, doesn't the 'job' require personal communication and the ability to communicate effectively?

 

I find this also true in my own educational consultant work which has transitioned from the face-to-face to totally online. It is often very difficult to put into the written word what could so easily be communicated face-to-face. We are not all born writers but we are certainly all born talkers!

Have You Ever Considered Beating The Recession?


Theresa Andrews from , was tired of worrying all the time where the next dollar is coming from. Life seemed merely a succession of bills and worrying about how to pay them. One late night while surfing the internet, her long hours of research had finally paid off and she discovered her tight lip secret to getting a break in life and beating the recession. She was finally able to provide for her three children while staying home with them.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Is this just another "get rich quick" scam? Possibly...you decide.
