A study completed by Deloitte Access Economics showed that the pervasive impact of technology and unprecedented industrial transformation has a dual impact on increasing levels of demand for higher skilled workers. In turn, the number of students who opt to commit to online study increased by 32.6% from 2006.
eLearning makes it possible to take classes and follow courses that wouldn’t necessarily be available to rural students. Online learning also offers support to students with tight budgets and limited resources to access learning materials and libraries.
The advantage of eLearning is tremendous and diverse as it provides an unlimited number of online resources, tools, video lectures, audio and scholarly articles, with the objective of helping students acquire the type of degree or certification they desire.
The transformative power of online learning
A Labour Force Survey that was conducted in 2018 throughout Australia showed that of Australians aged between 20 to 64 years, 31.4% had a bachelor’s degree or above. While 71% of all Australians that were employed had a non-school qualification. A staggering 66.7 % or 9.8 million Australians had attained a non-school qualification which strengthens the desire for online learning.
While there are thousands of industries that are readily available offering courses and accreditations online, there are some that stand out and do not take a long time to complete either.
An online beauty course, for example, takes from 5 days to two months and enables students an opportunity to work in the lucrative and vibrant world of makeup artistry.
A hospitality management diploma is a six months course that opens up the world of hospitality that includes front desk management and staff management.
Business Administration is another online course that offers you excellent opportunities to advance into key leadership roles. It can take under 8 months to complete when studying with a reliable and accredited online institution.
These are just a few examples of courses and educational pathways that are available for both rural and busy students. The opportunity for advancement and career progression is often the aim of most people because accomplishment in a professional life often equates to improved self-esteem.
