Students are not the same as they were 20 years ago. Today they blog, tweet, text, listen to iTunes and write a paper all at once. They are technology addicts who are constantly multitasking — in and out of the classroom. Many traditional classrooms have failed to meet the needs of this new student generation. That’s why the University of Missouri System aims to address the ever-changing student learning styles by spending $482,000 to develop 124 new online courses. The new online courses will include diverse offerings such as agroforestry, dental hygiene, criminology and financial engineering.
