Description

A visionary leadership of education has been currently transformed by mobile devices with educational purposes. These purposes lead to drastic changes that often occur with internal and formation structures of academic programs. These changes lead to prosperous students that are able to obtain these changes and modify their learning spectrum for a new era. Within the new era, careers and jobs are changing due to technical and financial advances that require these new skills. Mobile technology is the new face of education by a basis of relative institutions that believe in advances for career, educational, and personal purposes. These devices are created specifically for educational learning, such that more students are able to learn studies that they never could before. This will also help generate new students from locations the institution was not able to gain students from in the past. The purpose of this study is to engage topics about the virtual classroom and discuss a model that entices new possibilities that are in relative manner to measurements for academics. The focus will be based from research that is specifically centered for virtual learning. Areas of interest will be mainly distance learning, engineering virtual classrooms, modifying institutional programs, and marketing and enrollment procedures. These items will assure research that bases its methods on higher educational leaning set towards institutional awareness of advanced technology for academics. The outcomes of this model will create modified ideas and methods that are currently used in the academic setting. The research is based on current information that is sufficient and bases a majority of information related to academic integrity and purpose. Its methods are created to assist faculty and students better understand how creative measures can assist and engage the institution with technical advances for virtual classroom.

Abstract A visionary leadership of education has been currently transformed by mobile devices with educational purposes. These purposes lead to drastic changes that often occur with internal and formation structures of academic programs. These changes lead to prosperous students that are able to obtain these changes and modify their learning spectrum for a new era. Within the new era, careers and jobs are changing due to technical and financial advances that require these new skills. Mobile technology is the new face of education by a basis of relative institutions that believe in advances for career, educational, and personal purposes. These devices are created specifically for educational learning, such that more students are able to learn studies that they never could before. This will also help generate new students from locations the institution was not able to gain students from in the past. The purpose of this study is to engage topics about the virtual classroom and discuss a model that entices new possibilities that are in relative manner to measurements for academics. The focus will be based from research that is specifically centered for virtual learning. Areas of interest will be mainly distance learning, engineering virtual classrooms, modifying institutional programs, and marketing and enrollment procedures. These items will assure research that bases its methods on higher educational leaning set towards institutional awareness of advanced technology for academics. The outcomes of this model will create modified ideas and methods that are currently used in the academic setting. The research is based on current information that is sufficient and bases a majority of information related to academic integrity and purpose. Its methods are created to assist faculty and students better understand how creative measures can assist and engage the institution with technical advances for virtual classroom.

Frameworks and Definitions Knowles’ six basic characteristics on andragogy  Andragogy was founded upon the following postulations: (1) self- directedness, (2) need to know, (3) use of experience in learning, (4) readiness to learn, (5) orientation to learning, and (6) internal motivation (Knowles, 1985; Merriam, Caffarella, & Baumgartner, 2006; Forrest & Peterson, 2006; Chan, 2010). Educational Technology  Distance education and evolving technological advancements enable faculty and instructors to communicate and conduct business twentyfour hours a day by using smartphones (e.g., Androids, Blackberry), learning management systems, tablet computers (e.g., Apple’s iPad, and Microsoft’s Surface), and the hybrid between smartphones and tablet computers (e.g., Samsung’s Galaxy Note Phablet).
