Expectations for lifelong learning opportunities in Nebraska

Sarah Christie Cunningham, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


This study investigated the public's views and expectations for education and training, and assessed whether the technological efforts of the State of Nebraska match the methods of delivery desired by the public. Nebraskans believe lifelong learning is important and that education and training helps individuals be successful on the job. Yet the majority of Nebraskans choose not to take college courses but use a variety of other methods to obtain education and training. The public's perception of how colleges and universities meet the demands for lifelong learning in Nebraska are favorable, and the importance of the use of technological advances in education delivery methods ranked high. Findings about lifelong learning within Nebraska are similar to national findings documented by Dillman in 1995. Technology providers that supports education and training in Nebraska in 1998 are described. ^
