Online Learning for Trade Associations

And If ASAE and The Center Says It’s So…

Posted by Ellen on December 27, 2008

…then it must be so! ASAE & The Center conducted a research study they called “Associations of the Future.” Among the trends identified by the study: “Growing popularity of online education relative to that of classroom-based courses.” (See Associations Now, December 2008, page 20, for a brief summary, or the full report for more details.)

You’ve been hearing, “Social media is essential for associations.”

I’ll add to that: “Online learning is essential for associations.” And by online learning, I don’t just mean Webinars. If you’re not learning about and considering all the various ways learning can be effectively delivered online, then you need to get on task sooner rather than later. Right now it’s the best option for continuing to deliver quality professional development to our members, despite travel and other budgetary constraints.

Don’t wait or it will be too late.
