The current Coronavirus pandemic (Feb/March 2020) has taught us a lesson about the importance of doing things on line. Nothing in the last 50 years has curtailed our movement than this epidemic. The virus has stopped people from flying and global companies have been forced to contemplate unplanned losses.
Training and education are both important to all of us. These are the ways that we learn and develop. Innovation has come about through learning new ways of doing things. I believe strongly in learning and with schools and universities on the verge of being closed in some countries, there is going to be a lot of disruption to the way we do business.
Some universities, colleges and schools have to instigate their contingency plans. If you are quarantined at home, what do you do apart from watching the sad news on the TV and watching YouTube videos which are unlikely to provide you with a lot of benefit. What about training online.
By the way, you can find out about the Virus. The main reason for the continued spread of the virus may boil down to lack of knowledge about the new virus. We are unsure what we need to do to stop the spread of the virus. So knowledge is power.
