We all live in a fast paced world where business and life happens at a record pace.
Balancing work, family and having a social life all fight for our time and energy, leaving even less time for upgrading our professional skill set.
Logically, this would mean online learning makes the most sense, as it can be experienced from the comfort of your home and/or office.
Online learning gives you the freedom to learn at your own pace.
Educational institutions and training organizations have all identified this need for flexible learning in our modern, fast-paced and digitally connected world. There are various ways to take training courses online to meet this need, but many still hesitate to learn this way.
Why is this?
Let's take a look at the top 5 reasons people avoid digital learning.
1. Online learning makes me feel disconnected.
Many feel that learning from your home or office can make you feel isolated or disconnected in an online course. The view is that the comfort of a classroom environment is missing. In reality, this isn't the case, as learning platforms used today can be highly interactive. You can easily connect with other students, faculty and other support resources. As long as you're committed to attending online sessions and participating in the discussions, you can have a very connected learning experience, from the comfort of anywhere with an internet connection.
2. It doesn't fit my learning style.
This mindset is common, as people expect the learning environment to feel a certain way and conform to a set of rules. Many online training courses are not static; they are fluid and combine many different opportunities to learn. Interactive lectures, case studies and hands-on demonstrations are incorporated into many online courses to work with various learning styles.
3. Instructors are not available for help.
This can apply during a class if you don't feel confident to "raise your hand" or engage in hands-on practice labs. It's important to remember that online courses tend to be smaller than the average university lecture hall, inviting more interactivity. Interactive online tools give you access to student support groups, experts and information; in reality, you have tons of expert support that's available whenever you need it!
4. It's difficult to stay motivated.
How do you stay motivated to keep learning? The key is picking the right course and the right learning platform. Pick a relevant course which teaches you the skills you're looking to develop and can immediately utilize in your daily job. Being able to see the real-world applications right away will keep you motivated.
5. I don't have the right technology and connections to learn online.
There are system and bandwidth requirements that will help you get the most out of an online course. The best way to tackle this is working with your chosen learning provider before beginning the course. Getting the right infrastructure will help you get the most out of your courses.
Now that we've identified some of the common reasons people avoid digital learning to grow their skill set, let's take a look at some of the key benefits you can experience by learning online.
- Easy access from your home or office
- No geographic restrictions
- 24/7 access to technology experts
- Learn on your own time, at your own pace
- Eliminate costly and time-consuming travel to learning centers
Those in the IT industry know that without constant skills upgrading, the rapid pace of development in the industry will leave them behind.
Give online learning a try - you just may be surprised at the results!
Digital learning from Oracle University provides an excellent venue for continuous online learning - at your own pace!

A recent Gartner survey revealed that Software as a Service (SaaS) deployments are becoming "mission critical" for organizations around the world.
One rationale for migrating to SaaS is the reduction in deployment time. This allows an organization to quickly realize the benefits of the transition. When implementing a cloud application, however, businesses can easily overlook the skills staff need to execute a successful migration.
Technical professionals responsible for configuring, integrating and administering an Oracle Cloud application need to get up to speed quickly to ensure that business requirements are met.
As with any new application, business users, who will be regularly working with a cloud application, need to learn how to access and use the application to perform their jobs.
And when product updates are made to your cloud application your team needs access to the latest product information, so they can readily leverage the new features and functionality.
Introducing Oracle Cloud Learning Subscriptions
To help your organization address these real-world challenges that teams face, Oracle University has designed a specialized method of learning: Oracle Cloud Learning Subscriptions.
These subscriptions are comprehensive online learning solutions that provide relevant and timely content about your Oracle Cloud applications for all job roles in your organization that interact with your applications.
SaaS Learning Simplified
Oracle Cloud Learning Subscriptions provide the training you need, when you need it, all in one place. This makes it easier for your entire organization to learn about your Oracle Cloud applications.
With each subscription you get:
Two Editions for All Job Roles in Your Organization

With each 'Complete Edition' subscription you'll learn all about your Oracle Cloud applications throughout their entire life cycle - from implementing and managing your applications to getting the most out of new features in the latest release.

With each 'End User Edition' subscription, you'll develop an understanding of your applications, while learning how to access them to perform your job. This training is entirely role based with all key tasks recorded in short, easy to digest videos.

As one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, with a GDP growth of 7.4% in 2014, India's rapidly expanding IT market continues to be a great place for graduates and IT professionals alike.
Nasscom research predicts nearly a quarter of a million jobs will be added to the IT industry this year in India.
Companies are continuing to gear up their resources to meet the local and export demands.
India's Job Prediction by PeopleStrong, published as a part of the India Skills Report 2015, captures the hiring trends based on data shared by top employers in the industry. It predicts an increase of almost 18% in the hiring numbers compared to 2014.
- So which are the hottest areas?
- What can you do to place yourself to reap the benefits of this sector?
- What are employers looking for?
- How can you make yourself more marketable?
The large number of graduates flowing into the job market has heightened competition for employment.
While the good news is that the industry is still expanding, IT professionals need to continuously upgrade their skills and expand their expertise to climb the corporate ladder.
Earning Oracle Certifications has proven to be one way professionals are doing this.
Research suggests that the certification process demonstrates a level of expertise that potentially allows you to command a higher salary and more senior level positions.
For example, research conducted by PayScale shows the salary range DBAs can expect after earning the OCP certification.
In addition to job availability and salary scale, IT professionals need to explore the support infrastructure available to them. The AIOUG, India's Oracle User Group, is a strong and active organization that brings Oracle professionals together for continuous learning, problem solving and education.
Such support is important for those new to the marketplace as well as industry veterans, as it provides a backbone for support for your entire career!
As the IT industry continues to witness rapid expansion, IT professionals need to keep up with industry developments and align themselves with the direction of growth.
Investing in hands-on, continuous training is critical to stay relevant in an ever-changing and dynamic industry.
Selecting a career partner like Oracle is a smart choice for IT professionals. Oracle stays at the forefront of technology both through internal development, R&D and acquisitions.
Being Oracle certified will not only give you credibility; it also gives you the earning and staying power in India's highly competitive market.

It has been said before and it will always ring true: many factors can contribute to the success or failure of an IT project.
A popular misconception tells us that training is a luxury ill-afforded during lean economic times; but can you really afford not to train with technologies changing at a speed resembling that of a NASCAR race?
Another question: What does it take to get ahead of the pace car?
CIOs and IT managers understand that justification for every investment is needed at every turn. IDC research tells us projects that met a majority of their business objectives provided team members with 40% more training than those comparable projects that failed (IDC, 2012).
In fact, that same research tells us in IT security specifically, well-trained teams are 10% more productive (Impact of Training on Project Success, 2011).
Still not convinced?
