With the internet flooding with new knowledge and resources on not just a daily basis, but on a second by second basis, why are we limiting ourselves to the possibilities of a better education outside of the classroom?

It is tradition and ingrained in many adolescents growing up that you need to go to a good college to get the experience and training you need. Many students cannot afford dormitories let alone living on campus and dealing with the additional stresses involved. Why are we not as a community encouraging our young teens into using one of our newest and greatest tools, the internet, to enrich and enhance our lives with convenience?

With more and more colleges, universities, and online educational accredited study degree programs becoming available, the possibilities are growing. When you think back or think forward about your higher education, what factor usually comes into any busy person’s mind? Time and cost. Well, attending regular academic colleges and universities is not only time consuming, but it is also expensive. You need to have the resources to get to class, eat while youíre there, while balancing everything else in your life, appointments, scheduling, etc. Now think about utilizing the internet to your best convenience.

By attending an online accredited university, college, or another educational certified program, you have many more chances of being successful in maintaining your regular activities and staying less stressed, and receiving the same education. Just the time alone that you will save by not having to drive or ride to your institution, is more time you could study, work, or spend time with your family. Having the convenience of scheduling your online education and class structure is the new time management discovery of education.

While many people suffer from dead-end jobs and balancing families and work, they feel there is no way to fit in another class or item in their schedule. Think of the single moms, that love their children, want to give them a better life, but have to work twice as hard at a lower-paying job just to make ends meet, feeling that there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Consider the idea that even taking one class per ìsemesterî over time will enhance that personís quality of life, making them more valuable to the job force.

Getting your education online can be so much more convenient. Letís face it, we live in a world where we expect to get what we want when we want it. Well, go and get that higher education you have always wanted, feel good about it, and do it on your own time!

Educational Changes in the Field of Information Technology

Summary:

As the information technology industry has grown, so have the related educational opportunities. The educational curriculum isn't always the best gauge of industry changes within a particular field, although the rules which make that fact an evident reality for most industries rarely apply in the modern world of information technology. In fact, unlike disciplines such as medicine, the very nature of the current IT industry promotes the idea that advancements in technology are only truly valid and successful when they are recognized and widely accepted by all.

As the information technology industry has grown, so have the related educational opportunities. The educational curriculum isn't always the best gauge of industry changes within a particular field, although the rules which make that fact an evident reality for most industries rarely apply in the modern world of information technology. In fact, unlike disciplines such as medicine, the very nature of the current IT industry promotes the idea that advancements in technology are only truly valid and successful when they are recognized and widely accepted by all. For this reason, the IT curriculum is often on the heels of the latest developments, with competition among educational providers also helping to spur the cutting edge component of the coursework.

Lately, another trend is beginning to emerge, with more universities offering specializations in the field of IT. While IT and computer science-related programs with specializations are becoming more commonplace than ever, the marriage of IT and education was not always such a happy, fruitful union. Not long ago, the computer science curriculum could be summed up in two phrases: network administration and programming. Large scale hardware and software IT implementations were performed by technicians certified by Cisco or Microsoft. These were the certifications one sought after they graduated from college but before attempting to find employment. Now, with the implementation and operation of server-based intranet systems having long ago been de-mystified, most IT professionals are going from cap and gown to business casual with few if any stops along the way. The reason this is possible has a lot to do with changes in the educational system's view of information technology.

Most institutions are moving toward a diverse curriculum that incorporates IT fundamentals with an emphasis on a particular area of specialization. Educational institutions are reacting to the needs of employers in the job market. From the implementation of infrastructures to systems security, an area of study that once might have had a course or two devoted to it now comprises an entire degree program.

The result of these changes in the educational landscape regarding IT is indeed a direct reflection of changes in the workplace. As alterations to the structure of IT management have occurred, so have evolutions in the way IT personnel are educated and trained.
