Why People Prefer Online Learning

I belong to the “pre-educated” population—I received a four-year degree from a two-year college at age 18. A student at my own school asked me recently, “Is your diploma real?

Not surprisingly, polling shows a vast majority of those who haven’t pursued a college degree say they dislike this decision. Of the remaining group who have gone to college, half feel it was not a good decision for them. Nevertheless, those who work in education and higher education acknowledge that maintaining student satisfaction is always challenging—particularly when enrollment data reports show that many students are returning. Their answer: personalizing and building individualized learning environments.

Traditional models of classroom learning put the teaching goal ahead of students’ individual learning styles and abilities. If teachers emphasized conformity, students’ self-discipline and discipline would suffer.

Here’s a Facebook post from Dr. Maria Yuzda of the American College of Education:

“Traditionally the teaching and learning environments emphasized getting students to understand one small component of the standards, usually writing, without giving any suggestions for how to fully understand the standards. In addition, teachers often didn’t have the time or tools to coach students on reading or using critical thinking to put the skills they gained into practice. In many cases students didn’t take the time to study the material, leave class or even manage their time effectively. At times, teachers and administrators encouraged students to skip ‘bad’ or ‘boring’ or just ‘work at’ or ‘work hard.’ In many of these instances, teachers knew what they were teaching when they went to the classroom, but they didn’t know what the students needed when they went in. The result, as Maria teaches below, has been students who have no literacy skills, self-discipline and discipline and know nothing about critical thinking.”

A first steps in the effort to help students achieve more is to recognize the strengths of individual learners and their environments. Better and more effective teaching can boost students’ success when they are in a classroom environment where the teachers in that setting support student learning rather than placing the teachers in a position to compete with one another to have the highest teaching scores.

Unfortunately, teachers and administrators are not adequately preparing students to meet the requirements of the college level curriculum in high school. An incredible number of students entering the US high school system are unprepared to succeed in college or gain access to a career. Students have to take tests like MCAT in high school which are designed to determine college-ready students. Many students in the US are not properly prepared to meet the rigorous college requirements when they graduate. They arrive with the lowest educational attainment of any US group.

College graduates learn from the two-year and four-year public institutions in the US, two of which are considered “public” rather than “public” by the US Department of Education. The US Department of Education has provided data to show which public and private institutions have the highest-attended college graduates in their communities. A perfect match between a student’s learning needs and the campus that can provide a learning environment that matches them is vital to a student’s success in college and post-secondary education.

College and vocational schools serve the majority of US students, and they have an obligation to serve students well. US Bancorp Principal Retirement Trust works with community colleges to support their goals of being the best in the community and also quality, safety, and financial solutions for retiring and retired professionals.
