Online Students Develop Marketable Professional Skills - Maria Teresa Alzuru and Matthea Marquart, EDUCAUSE Review

Students preparing to take online courses anticipated gaining professional skills in addition to their online learning of the course content. A survey of the marketable skills students wanted to obtain found that 38 percent chose all 10 of the professional options offered as possible answers. The top three skills students wanted to gain were "Confidence with online technologies and environments," "Self-motivation, initiative, and independent learning," and "Experience with multiple types of online software.” http://www.educause.edu/ero/article/online-students-develop-marketable-professional-skills
