Is online learning, through its ability to promote values of critical thought, independence, and accountability, the education befitting the 21st century?
Technological advancements have meant constantly changing processes and exposure to innovative ways of conducting business. The workforce of today is exposed to more complex working environments. For skills development to keep pace, an education that is sensitive to the times is necessary.
“Self-directed learning is the thrust of online education. From the use of supplementary videos to replicate face-to-face interactions, to the use of online course modules as substitutes to a classroom lecture, students in a virtual setting are expected to be self-starters. An independent attitude, coupled with time management skills and personal responsibility creates a student ready to face the challenges of a shifting work environment,” said Ambassador Amable R. Aguiluz V, Chairman Emeritus, AMA Education System.
Exposure to information and communication technology (ICT) is also crucial to thrive in both online schools, and in the 21st century work environment. Organizations expect their employees to be technologically literate to maximize productivity. Consequently, online learning allows students to be immersed in the language of latest technological trends to increase efficiency.
The impact of online learning in bolstering the future of a stronger workforce is immense. In the Philippines, AMA Online Education (AMA OEd), established itself as the first full online education program in the country. Through numerous degree and certificate courses, it actively welcomes students who want to learn at their own pace and be globally competitive at the same time. As all courses and degree programs offered in AMA OEd are CHED certified, students receive the same quality of education as a campus-based university.
