Whether you’re an online student just entering high school or well into your college years, what you do today may prepare you for the future- if you’re interested in a future of working remotely or working from home (WFH).

Life isn’t always better when learning or working remotely; anyone who’s partaken in hours of education via a computer screen will tell you it can be a drag. It doesn’t have to be. If you’re willing to hone your skills in an online educational environment, SCI Online is here to help you learn. 

Let’s take a quick look at how your daily online learning routine can prepare you for working from home and, with it, some of the pros and cons. What you do today will help you tomorrow.

Prepare for Tomorrow’s Future of Work

There is no denying the world is moving to an online-centric world of work. And quickly too. As we’ve navigated through the issues of COVID-19, we have all witnessed the world scurry to adapt. In doing so, much of what we once did in an office cubicle is now done from a home office (or couch or dinner table). 

The online learning habits you create today will undoubtedly follow you into the future of working online. Time management is the number one reason to learn online, especially in high school; without proper skills to handle groups of assignments with specific due dates, life in general, let alone online work, might take a bit to learn. There is more, too.

Pros and Cons

Work is work; school is school. But, of course, both have their positive and negative aspects. So, as you make your way through your educational journey towards a WFH, here are a few things to think about.

Pros

  • In the midst of 2020, Goodwin University noted the number one positive of online education was the comfort and convenience of being where you want to be and juggling life and education. 
  • Time management (as noted above) and flexibility are how online education helps prepare you to work from home. Concordia University further notes, “[w]ith your course load and other responsibilities, you’ll need to develop a study routine right for you.” 

Cons

  • Less personal connections, face-to-face time, and isolation. Again, Goodwin University says, “[i]t can fuel their learning experience, and help them establish more emotional bonds with professors and their peers. Without this interaction, some students may feel very isolated.”
  • In 2010, NC State identified an issue with online learning you’ll still see today; the effectiveness of an assessment. In other words, is the student performing to their fullest potential? This carries over to the workplace later in life too. Is the employee giving it their all? An excellent online education can ensure they’re constantly giving their best. 

If you might think an online learning environment might be right for you, take a look at SCI Online. Our online programs will prepare our students with the skills necessary to complete their online programs and equip them to master a WFH environment.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
