A key to understanding this issue is an assessment of the overall landscape of post-secondary education and training. College is one piece of the puzzle. n fact, colleges and universities account for only 35 percent of all post-secondary education system and training. The rest consists of the job training, formal education programs provided by the employer, military training, learning, and a variety of other programs.

Yet the role of colleges and universities is essential. Among other things, higher education acts as a major gateway to other parts of the post-secondary learning system. Post-secondary education gives access to jobs that offer the most employer-provided training, and access to technology most powerful in the workplace, flexible. This is reflected in the positive correlation between level of education and training of staff provided by the employer. College graduates are almost twice as likely as high school graduates to receive formal training from their employers.

Access to this training is important because it directly affects an employee’s earning capacity. Training can increase the salaries of employees of 3 to 11 percent, with formal training offering higher yields than informal training.Education, training in the workplace, and workplace technology tend to be sequential and complementary in the production of productivity and income.

Higher levels of formal education, not only to increase access to jobs that offer additional training, they also increase access to technology that complements rather than replaces, skills. More educated workers using technologies that increase the autonomy of workers and improve desktop Skills- or flexible machine tools, for example. But the less educated workers tend to use technologies that substitute for competence. Close training can offset the broader educational deficiencies, although it does not provide the ability to adapt, which in the long run can be disastrous when the narrow tasks are fully automated or outsourced.

Access to technology on the job is important to the earning capacity of a worker. Even high school dropouts who use technology at work earn about 15 percent more than those who do not and premium earnings for college graduates who use technology is even more significant. Good pay and benefits, and are linked to the sequence accession to post-secondary education studies, success, training in the workplace and the use of technology on the job.

Occupations, Education and Employment Opportunities:
There are two types of jobs. There are brand new positions created as an occupation grew, and there are existing jobs that people leave behind when they retire or move to other professions. Together, the two types of positions become vacant, they create employment opportunities, which represent the actual number of new workers will be required by a particular profession.

Between 2008 and 2018, there will be a little less than 47 million jobs, which will include new 14.4 million and 32.4 million replacement jobs. Some 29.9 million of those-63 percent of the total openings will require at least a college education.
The vacancies due to replacement needs tend to be important in the fall or slow-growing professions. Production occupations are a good example. About 350 000 jobs will disappear by 2018, but retirement and other departures will create more than 2 million openings. Postal workers are also an example. Some 70,000 jobs in this category will disappear by 2018, but there will be more than 125,000 jobs to replace the missing workers.

Online education is basically acquiring education from the existing colleges and universities inside or outside the country through the internet. Degree programs offered through online education are called online degrees, which are basically the same with degree programs universities and colleges offer in their respective campuses, only they are made accessible through the internet for people who cannot attend regular schooling. This groundbreaking mode of acquiring an education has broken down the walls and limits of universities and colleges, and have stretched education accessibility even to those who are in the most remote areas.

Online education stemmed from the concept of *distance learning*. The main concern that distance learning tried to address was the incapability of adult learners, mostly professionals and in need of higher degrees, to attend regular school on a day schedule (or even night or weekend schedules) because of their works, families, and other commitments. This trend then further evolved and nowadays, even bachelor degrees, diplomas or certificates, and training programs are available. Recognizing the increasingly stiffer competition in the labor market and its direct correlation to the need for college education (vis-a-vis the constraints in getting one), universities and colleges in America pioneered the online education. Soon enough, learning institutions in Europe and other parts of the world followed.

Choices in having a college course online is not limited on certain courses; neither are the Masteral or Doctorate degrees available online. In the US alone, about a thousand of universities and colleges have made their degree programs available for online education. The courses being offered covers a very extensive array of fields, interests, and specializations. For the bachelors level, a lot of arts or science courses are offered. Most commonly taken up are courses in Accounting, Marketing and Sales, Advertising, and Business and Commerce. A computer course specializing in web development and systems management is among the most availed online course. Others are real estate course, language course, and English course (mostly enrolled are Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans). Other popular choices are associate degrees in arts and humanities, telecommunications, human resources, hospitality management, education, veterinary, etc. Vocational and diploma courses such as clothing design and interior design are also available. For the Masteral level, most students enroll in business and trade related degrees. A lot is also in technology management, information systems, aviation science, international relations, industrial and manufacturing, etc. Other universities even offer a free online course on areas like foreign language and stenography.

In online education, instructors of universities and colleges create websites where they post the course outline, course requirements, lectures, assignments, and exams. The connection between a student and his/her teacher or professor is made possible through real time sharing like email or internet relay chat. Web cameras are also being used by some professors in delivering on time or pre-recorded video instructions and lectures. Message boards are also used for posting announcements. Since students are basically studying in the internet, they are allowed to use web sources for most of their assignments.
