Episode Description

In this unique view of distance learning, we will be speaking with three college students, from three different universities, on their personal experiences in this, in some cases very new learning environment. School closures have led educational institutions everywhere to scramble to move instruction to an online format. It is unfortunate, that once again, proper planning seems to have given way to crisis management and implementation. We will get real insights from real students on what they see and feel about this new reality. Questions discussed will include, beyond basic education topics, food, housing, money, learning access, feedback, social interactions, and the “new” academic life. EACOE and BACOE have been involved in Distance Learning for some years now. We also hope to gain insights “from the trenches” on what works, and what needs improvement. Please tune into this very unique episode of The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman and guests!

The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman

The 2020’s Enterprise is about sorting through the internet-driven advice madness that exists in business today. The great thing about the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything. The problem with the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything! Published practices are quite different than “best practices.” This program will provide practice-based insights in business transformation, organizational transformation and technology transformation, based on real world practices. Business executives, managers, practitioners, and staff are bombarded daily with utopian solutions that more often than not deliver significantly less than promised. This show is “no jargon,” just human communication. Be treated like a “customer” not a “user.” Our philosophy is to provide you with insights that can provide true value to organizations and individuals that face today’s and tomorrow’s competitive pressures, and provide a usable takeaway from each program.
