As More Try Online Classes, Tech Issues Arise

Despite these problems, Wenzloff maintains that is especially important for students to learn this new technology now, before they begin their careers.

"You have to have an awareness of what's out there, even if you have to take a training class to do so," he said. "It's really not difficult technology and having these skills is so important going into any type of job. Everything I can think of, whether a business job or an educational job, you are going to need to work on a system. If students expect work in the job force, they have to get to know technology."

Studying to Study

For those less practiced in computer programming and software, Wenzloff recommends either an online lesson or a short on-campus orientation class. Many companies offer books, consultations and online courses that can help students become better informed.

"Most schools offer some kind of technology class. They normally aren't for credit, but they're also not very long. Two hours is probably enough for students to get some basic application training. The files in different programs are pretty much the same so it's just a matter of transferring knowledge," he says. "There is also so much online tutorial. People should focus more on you can do with these programs versus how you do it. "
