Is the Internet Killing Shakespeare?

Is the internet killing Shakespeare? Of course not! He’s dead already.

But seriously, kids are practical and want to learn skills that will get them good paying jobs. That means they are enrolling less in the Humanities and English and Literature courses, in particular. They are also shunning online Humanities curriculum as they don’t believe “soft” skills and discussions translate well online. Colleges and online course developers are hoping to improve the online classroom experience. We are working on that issue too by developing virtual classrooms and study groups for corporate training and intranets. The lessons will certainly apply on the college landscape, too.

Given the state of written and verbal communication in many organizations, we think its worthwhile to teach skills and best practices for so-called softer skills.
