Reader Joe Mostowey gives his first-hand observations that online learning doesn’t encourage true thinking and problem-solving.
Our organization embraced online recertifications about 5 or 6 years ago, and the quality of the “education” is striking. Everyone can pass the online courses, everyone can give the proper response, but very, very few can solve a problem, come up with a solution, or think outside the parameters of the “education” they recieved on line.
Even in grade school, and later college, I learned as much from the people surrounding me in class as I did from the person “teaching” the course.
Those who embrace the new “online” education, and blast those who point out the limitations of such an education are lacking the meat of an education and declaring the gristle to be prime rib.
