The transition to a strategic mindset is critical for instructional technologists or instructors working to help organizations succeed in changing environments. As a result, the technology environment is changing, and expectations have been altered based on how people engage in social media: For example, instructional technologists more of an educational-focused role as business organizations continue to embrace technology. Previously, instructional technologists only had to maintain responsibilities, make instructional decisions, and support senior administration policies. Now they are involved in the planning process. Instructional technologists must grasp new trends and organizational direction, foresee potential problems and challenges, and provide solutions and tactics to manage an indefinite future. Furthermore, education bridges the technology gap between older students and younger ones. While graduate online learning fits many adult students' schedules, lack of familiarity and training with technology means that adult students can become frustrated with the tools.
