American colleges face barrage of problems where tuition costs soar, narrows employment opportunities for graduates, and employers complain of not being able to find enough workers with the technical skills essential.
One possible solution is through online classes that many, both in terms of quantity and quality. Online classes are now widely taught by many universities. This online class also offers many subjects ranging from cookery to computer programs.
We can enter the market very quickly and teach skills while, so a lot of software that is constantly changing and new software being created, and the kind of things that would not easily fit into the college curriculum.
Another difference - not the professors who teach the students, who then do their own research and study. But in an online class on the contrary, according to the student and blogger John Haber, who took some online classes in order to obtain a bachelor's degree within one year. Usually it takes four years.
The students follow the video lectures at home, and when they enter the classroom, they are ready to discuss more actively, or interact with the teacher or task.
Experts say the new technology will be "a major impact" on the university. And most students predict the next classes will be a blend of online lectures and professors who directly assist students to overcome difficult problems.
This is a welcome change, according to Georgetown University labor economist, Tony Carnevale, who said schools should be cheaper and more focused on the skills needed by the company.
It is clear that more and more people in need of post-graduate education and training, yet many of them do not get it. If it can, it does not lead to job creation. Or lead to a job where they do not use their talents fully, and we do not have enough money to handle, so the efficiency of institutions graduate program is very important right now.
Marketing expert Chris Cullen, from the company's Infinia, said competition from online alternatives, and concerns about the cost, will change the college.
Consumers demand that educational institutions to convince them why they should pay tuition at the institution. What are the benefits of their investments?.
Cullen said leading universities with strong reputations will thrive in the online world, but universities are less and less prestigious achievement possible trouble attracting students - and their tuition.
