The online continuing education maturity curve
By Neil Ashiwaza
In the past decade, continuing education, or CE, has experienced a distinct trend with respect to the stages of maturity CE providers go through to bring the benefit of online CE to their members and participants. Most member organizations started at the lowest level of maturity, which was to provide in-person events that allowed participants to earn CE credits. But the use of the Internet to provide online events has sparked an evolution in member convenience and learning experience

Boosting adult educational skills can grow the middle class
Center for American Progress
An educated workforce is one of the bedrocks of not only the American middle class but also the U.S. economy as a whole. Our economy is the most productive in the world because of the investments workers make in their own skills and civil society makes in education. However, a new report from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, or OECD, commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education, finds that we are failing to ensure that adults keep pace with the increasing need for basic and advanced skills that today's middle-class jobs demand. The report's findings suggest that other nations are doing a better job of equipping all citizens with the skills to be productive, while the United States has stagnated.

Integrating e-learning into your training portfolio
Skillsoft
Training and development is a critical component to organization effectiveness. But, organizations must invest in their talent in order to achieve that level of success. The most valuable asset a company has is its people, and that investment must be properly supported with efficient training measures. The 2012 ASTD State of the Industry Report estimates that U.S. organizations spent approximately $156.2 billion on employee learning in 2011, with award-winning organizations investing on average of $1,272 per employee — 24 percent more than average organizations.

Professional development — The health and safety myth
Material World
The stereotype of the lonely, bearded offshore worker is a difficult one to shake off. Almost as difficult to get past is the health and safety worker typecast as a busybody with little better to do than pester hard-pressed workers. But the reality of work in the oil and gas sector is a more complex picture than many people assume. Afternoon speakers at the 2nd Annual European Offshore Health and Safety Conference in London, U.K., looked at the psychological factors affecting health and safety in the oil and gas industry.

4 reasons why the digital age has yet to revolutionize recruitment
The Guardian
The internet allows recruiters to reach a much bigger pool of candidates, as well as helping candidates find out about a greater number of jobs. LinkedIn has more than 200 million users and is adding one new user every second, which is hardly surprising; and with 70% of the US workforce disengaged and 74 percent of employees willing to consider alternative jobs, LinkedIn's membership will surely keep growing.

MOOCs: The gifts that keep on giving
Electronic Design
If you aren't involved in some form of regular continuing education, you're doomed to suffer the consequences of ignorance, peer contempt, technological obsolescence, and eventual obscurity. And then you retire. I'm not kidding. Electronics never lets up. Changes occur hourly not only in the technology but also in the marketplace. You always need to know what is going on and how to turn the latest components, methods, trends, and technologies to your benefit. Continuing education is the answer.
