CLONMEL HOTSPOT -- We're around a year away from offering a series of online learning modules that will give students the same academic credit as the classroom experience. This is nothing revolutionary, because you can become a primary school teacher in Ireland, studying online with Hibernia College.
"It only takes 18 months and the degree is recognised by the Irish government. If a company like Hibernia College with very few employees and no campus of its own can set up and offer courses leading to professional qualifications, then what hope is there for bloated universities and colleges, with thousands of staff and expensive buildings?We will face the same questions of productivity once our online courses come on stream.
