Can we look at a new paradigm for teaching security awareness?
Online education has created a new paradigm for teaching and learning different from the traditional classroom experience, and also different from earlier attempts at computer-based instruction. instructional methods and strategies employed in online courses are essentially the same as those used by instructors in their traditional classes, with the exception of student interaction and collaboration.
While online education certainly has it benefits from an ROI perspective over traditional classroom methods, what is inherently missing is the "interaction and collaboration" part. As social media and online communities continue to expand and grow in popularity, educators will need to be able to tap into this new method of communication and adapt online education to fit with the new bite-sized, instantaneous learning methodology. How can we use tools like twitter to get the message through and make it stick? Here is our opportunity to build social education communities and interact with each other regardless of distance to share and learn in a community fashion. How inspiring is that? How are you going to use this new medium in your training plans?
