Online coaching

The e-learning coach is the greatest determinant of student success because the online environment relies heavily on the instructor to be an anchor. The e-learning instructor’s mission is to help the e-learner construct his autonomous learning, helping him to understand that learning can lead to the accomplishment of desired outcomes throughout life and take responsibility for his own learning. The student is not left alone. Depending on the autonomous level of the learner, the e-learning instruction can be proactive or reactive.
