Education & Tech Continue to Shape Business Processes

Education and technology have become increasingly intertwined, especially when the global pandemic forced many in-person functions towards an online format. With search engines and endless databases at our fingertips, it’s easy to see why educational platforms have risen to prominence and will likely continue to do so for years to come. An article by Forbes discusses how educational online platforms should remain prevalent and what we should do to make this shift as beneficial as possible. “By definition, the concept of online-based learning, or eLearning as we commonly know it, connects people. It can engage and educate anyone, and everyone, globally in need of acquiring knowledge in any capacity. That includes students and employees, and everyone in between. It can empower learners and enhance skills. It can be time effective, cost efficient, completely accessible and interactive, among other attributes. And, at present, the experience of eLearning can be sorely enriched through the appropriate technology. “One of the wonders of the Internet is how it puts everything at our fingertips — entertaining content, access to information, communicating with friends old and new, and even the ability to grow and evolve,” noted Mike Tankel, partner/optimist at the marketing and development firm To Be Continued. “Too often we learned what others wanted — or required – for us to gain knowledge through the traditional ways. But, with eLearning, we are now in control, doing it because we are curious, we are interested, and we seek to continue our development and growth.” Of course, the personal computer and the personal web were the next major inventions to revolutionize out of the classroom learning. In 1989, the University of Phoenix became the first institution to launch a fully online collegiate institution. In 1996, entrepreneurs Glen Jones and Bernand Luskin opened Jones International University, which was the first accredited and fully web-based university. And, by 2003, the Blackboard Learning System announced that approximately 40,000 instructors were teaching 150,000 online courses to more than six million students, across 55 countries.” Read the rest of this article here. 

Educational institutions have felt the power of online learning, and many will permanently conduct some aspect of their instructional methods in an online format due to its ease and effectiveness.

What’s worth noting here is that educational technology is not limited to the educational sphere. It expands out into the world of business, healthcare, and any other industry that involves learning in some manner.

 

Schools “continue to seek development and growth,” and so does every other industry.

 

Businesses in particular have a lot to gain from utilizing tech in their educational endeavors. Companies need technology to train their employees, help streamline certain processes, aid marketing efforts, and to make the sales process easier.

 

Technology can educate and be used to make life easier for those involved in your business. You just have to be willing to evaluate your specific business needs and implement software accordingly.
