We recently sat down and spoke with Dr. Greg Williams, program director of the Learning and Performance Technology (LAPT) graduate program.
Here's a little of what Dr. Williams had to say:
I think a lot of organizations are going to say, okay this is an opportunity for us to save money. They’ll consider their rental space or their mortgage payments and realize they could save a ton of money by not having these physical offices.
So that in a strange way presents opportunities for people in our field because people are going to start to work more remotely. They’re going to use more technology. Virtual trading will be even more important. E-learning is going to be even more appealing and organizations are going to be forced to deal with this. It positions students from our program very well for career opportunities.
