“Bad Zoom Classes”
The shroud is off and people can finally peer into higher education, and for the first time in the world people could see what a bad zoom class looks like… it’s not pretty. I think what’s really happened is we’ve jumped into the future about 10 to 15 years. I’m convinced there are some educators out there that can do it, and they can teach it and I think this is a huge opportunity for them because this is a chance for a lot of well meaning people to find a platform and put their own foot back in education and really help.
There’s so many skills now that can be gained just with a decent internet connection and with a tablet or a laptop. You can learn skills in project management, and digital marketing or whatever… There’s a lot of things that students need besides just passing some class… they need that confidence, they need a network and they need the brand.
If you can learn to value the things in life that you can’t put a dollar amount on and then devote your life to those things. I think that’s where you find your greatest reward and even to this day I look at you know some of my best students and I’m so proud of them. But I also look at my students who are simply, you know back in the Philippines and working with their families and they’re running a small business, they’re happy. they can provide for their families. They feel like they are part of something bigger than just themselves. And they’re creating jobs in their own little way and they’re changing the world so I think, I think those are the two examples.
