Coached e-Learning

Check out this approach to combining e-learning with coaching. In Coached e-Learning courses, the coach meets with the student to begin each course, reviews the course plan and materials, and agrees to a schedule. The student then learns at their own pace from the e-Learning platform -- online materials and videos, community forums, exercises, and exams. Along the way, the coach checks intermediate goals, answers questions, helps overcome obstacles, and oversees progress. The course is completed when the student passes the final exam, which, depending on the student's schedule and pace of learning, follows one to two weeks of coursework.
