Guest commentary — To create jobs, create a skilled workforce
Big Ideas for Jobs    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Each year, millions of jobs are created for workers with the right skills to fill them. These jobs are permanent, family-sustaining and unlikely to be outsourced. While it's important to talk about "creating" new jobs within our nation, it's also crucial that we fill the ones that already exist. The skills that these jobs require will be in-demand by employers long after any short-term job-creation program comes to a halt. More

Adult community classes ensure learning doesn't end at graduation
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Classroom lights burn bright into the night several days a week in Fox Chapel Area and Mt. Lebanon high schools in Pittsburgh, where learning and laughter continue long after the day students have gone home. Desks, work tables, kitchens, swimming pools and gymnasiums in the schools are filled with adults who pay to attend night classes — not because they are required to learn but because they want to learn. An average of 1,400 to 1,800 enroll each year in 80 to 90 classes offered in adult education programs in Fox Chapel Area, and nearly 1,300 participate in 40 to 45 classes in Mt. Lebanon. More

3 essential skill sets for instructor excellence in multi-platform training    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Our experience is showing that a really good instructor can usually overcome the deficiencies that may exist in a multi-platform training program's curriculum or its delivery mechanism. Moreover, unfortunately, even the strongest program can be undermined if the instruction is inadequate. The instructor is a critical make-or-break element in any connected classroom — and an element that can sometimes be undervalued when a training program becomes too narrowly focused on the program's technology.

Universities woo continuing education students on Facebook with Jenzabar widget
Campus Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two universities are the first to use a widget from education technology company Jenzabar to give prospective students a quick way to access a course form directly from Facebook. Emory Continuing Education in Atlanta and California State University San Marcos are both users of Jenzabar's Higher Reach, a set of administrative applications for managing continuing education programs that make the linkage possible. In 2011 the company introduced a feature that allows users to create a Facebook catalog application to connect the continuing education catalog with the school's Facebook page. The widget enables a Facebook user to browse and "shop" for class offerings from within the social networking site. More
