Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is quite a good paper (25 page PDF) that questions whether a technique employed in business, the realistic job preview (RJP) could help prepare students for online learning. An RJP consists of a video where existing employees describe what the job is like, or a self-assessment questionnaire where prospective employees consider what they like and dislike (the paper suggests that a combination of both is preferred). It concludes by recommending schools create and use RJPs for online learning and makes a set of specific recommendations about content, timing, and detail.
