Bringing Exceptional Learning to Everyone

September 2005
T+D;Sep2005, Vol. 59 Issue 9, p65
This article discusses the role of online education in the development of an organization. As training and development, human performance improvement, organizational development, and their related disciplines have earned a strategic seat at the mission-critical table of many businesses, practitioners are increasingly faced with a two-pronged dilemma: how to advance their own learning and thus progress in their careers, while providing stellar performance in their daily jobs; and how to administer and manage a training budget so that quality learning reaches the maximum number of qualified organizational participants. In many cases, the solution to both these dilemmas is the same: distance learning, particularly online universities.
