Both students as well as professionals are discovering the joys of online study programs: improved work-life balance, convenient study schedules, real-time educator support and all this while holding down a full-time job.
Online learning and blended learning programs are becoming increasingly popular, and with good reason! Working professionals who need to stay updated with the latest advancements in the industry are often unable to cope with the rigid schedules of traditional classroom courses. Online learning that is self-paced allows them to study anywhere and anytime, which means they can hold down a full-time job even as they advance their education.
Students find that blended learning programs which combine practical hands-on workshops with online theory are very effective in helping them get a well-rounded perspective on the subject matter. Little wonder, then, that the e-learning industry is growing at an unprecedented pace. In this issue, we take an in-depth look at the CHC33015 – Certificate III in Individual Support.
