Career Practice Skills through Global eLearning.
This paper describes the College of Career Practitioners, a program designed for the people who choose to deliver career support services to others. It operates on a combination of computer-mediated communication and printed materials. Students interact with tutors on-line and conduct most of their guided research for assignments on the Internet. The college is being transformed into a virtual campus. Electronic communication is the main way students interact with the curriculum content, their tutors, and their fellow students. eLearning study is a new emerging method of learning and can operate on a synchronous or asynchronous mode. Asynchronous learning, the model selected for the College for Career Practitioners, allows students to begin study when they are ready, work at their own pace, and complete studies when they chose. Some key features include: (1) enrollment at any time; (2) progression of studies at one's own pace; (3) tuition linked to completing requirement; (4) staggered payment of tuition fees; (5) global network of mentors; and (6) password access via Internet to secure Common Room; Reflection Room; Cafeteria; and Bookstore.
