Quantitative Research at The New School’s Center for Research and Education in Equity reveals the benefits of online learning to students and working adults.
Online Learning And How It Helps The Full Time Workforce Quantitative Reserach
Tendency In The Computer Science And Engineering Workforce
The U.S. needs to upgrade the skills of its job-seekers and rebuild the economy. But, the problem is more complex than fixing our current education system and bringing up a wave of new innovators to fill every new technology job. We need everyone, not just some, to learn new skills, which the latest education trend, STEM education, is doing. STEM means Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. That is just the surface of what needs to be done to rebuild the jobs market.
This is why the BSU offers a STEM-certified vocational diploma program – which specializes in Information Technology (IT) and logistics. Students can learn to look at software infrastructure, systems, and data right from the beginning, and always know there is a potential for a real job should they so choose. Students are also mentored through the program by Microsoft’s team of trainers and specialists to help make their learning experience different and improved.
Even if students don’t want to work for Microsoft directly, they still benefit from this training as a means to acquire computer literacy, learn to create, and gain the technical prowess needed to pursue technology-related programs. There are numerous other scholarships and training opportunities around the state.
Self-Pleasure Versus A Course Is What It Takes
Depending on the student’s personal growth and comprehension of knowledge (it’s his or her own knowledge in their head) an array of options exist to ensure a course will be a total success. Some courses take about four weeks to finish, others takes longer to complete. Some students find the direct skills training to be challenging, as they will need to take the time to do a research on-site or find the instructor’s specific helpful videos and references. Others prefer to pick and choose skills they have mastered and use them to help with the rest of the classes, and this way every student has a certain amount of results to show up to each week. Regardless of which method students opt for, a traditional course or hands-on learning gets students to learn something in a smart way. This allows them to progress through their learning without feelings like: “I don’t know anything” or “I won’t be able to pass.”
An initiative within BSU to reach more students and encourage women and students of color to pursue careers in STEM-related fields is completely an online learning initiative. Many female students have found this program a self-help source, and giving them the time and space to work through any problems that might be occurring in their learning.
Despite the amount of progress made by BSU and its college partners over the years, the opportunity to get a CS degree in a more convenient manner and at a lower cost must be taken by any and every interested person. That’s why online courses continue to be such a popular choice. This method is not just limited to BSU, but any students looking to keep their GPA up and get a college degree. Such programs are also in their stages to progress further within the industry, making it more competitive and informed.
