Because of how the world is shifting today, you might be thinking, “What’s the best way to modify my whole adult ed program and all the processes with it, to all run seamlessly online, virtually, and to have real-time, live access in the palms of my hands?” This might be even more important in the case of adult education and the programs that have run in the past, traditionally, with in-person registrations, trainings, courses, and all other physical aspects. In 2016, the National Center of Education Statistics showed forty-three percent of adults participated in any type of adult education program. That’s approximately 76 million adults.
In today’s world, that number has skyrocketed. Especially with technology and other variables evolving, aspects such as the workplace environment have been dramatically affected. However, the opportunities in areas, such as the availability and accessibility factors of these adult education programs, can be seen as advantages to program directors.
Due to Covid-19, adult education programs have seen that you can adopt virtual and online practices into each step and process of your program and bring the resources to the recipients themselves. By doing this, your program hasn’t been “put on pause” because of the impact of coronavirus and whether it’s “safe” for large, in-person interactions. By going virtual, you’re able to reach more people, people who might not have been willing in the first place to participate in a program but will now since they can access it all from the comfort of their own home and have flexibility around their personal schedule.
Not only can you reach more people virtually, but by having a fully virtual program, all documents and other essential files for each applicant are organized and saved under each profile. This makes it easily accessible to the program director or any other staff member to view at any point in time. These analytics are critical for program directors, and the technology in the past has hindered the ability to easily track students’ progress. With myOneFlow, program directors have the capability to report tracking on students’ progress in the program at any time, to ensure each milestone and task completion.
Adult education programs provide essential and critical resources to the community to help their efforts and motivation to continue their education and gain relevant knowledge in the relevant workplace today. People may not have previously acquired these skills in earlier education, and because of the lack of knowledge, it can hinder them from applying to the current jobs they may be seeking.
By going virtual, this not only will help provide the tools needed to help people gain the new knowledge and experience one needs to apply for a certain job, but can also help run programs easier, providing any-point-in-time reporting and metrics that may not have been available to you in the past, all in a matter of seconds!
