Teachers have knowledge and the ability to teach that knowledge. There is huge demand for teaching in, for example, Asia. Many of those teachers facing cuts in jobs and salaries will start their own e-learning initiatives, for example teaching English to the Chinese. The Internet makes it possible to deliver your knowledge from your home office and save on travel expenses. There really is no need to be physically present!

Yes, consultants and teachers can take advantage of Internet systems to deliver their knowledge overseas or to students nearer to home. Some of these redundant teachers will no doubt start their own companies / consultancies. www.jc-j.asia
