Internet Training Needs Inventory.
The Office of Institutional Research at Johnson County Community College (JCCC), Kansas, conducted a survey to help determine the level of interest in Internet training courses. Surveys were mailed in November 1998 to 9,982 individuals selected from six lists representing the JCCC Business and Industry Division's current and potential clients. A total of 667 replied. Major findings indicate that 83% of all respondents currently have access to the Internet. Over two-thirds of respondents with current or future access to the Internet are interested in taking training courses on the Internet. Interest level in taking training courses on the Internet is lowest for Accountants (53%) and greatest for Skilled Trades (72%). The top ten topics of interest to 40% to 70% of respondents include: (1) Windows '98; (2) Excel; (3) Word; (4) Access; (5) Finance; (6) Leadership; (7) Project Management; (8) Supervisory Skills; (9) Communication Skills; and (10) Business Writing. The preferred method for getting technical support while taking a training course on the Internet is an 800 number. Respondents expected that most courses would cost between $75 and $99. Appended are tabled survey results and the questionnaire. (AS)
