Online / Distance Learning Coaching Courses in Behavioral Change Coaching

Never before in the world of learning have so many delivery options been available. So how do you select the right delivery medium for a coach training course? In a recent international survey it was found that 92 percent of large organizations will use some form of online learning this year. There are several distinct advantages and disadvantages of e-learning. By carefully weighing this list of advantages and disadvantages, you should be able to better judge what medium best suits.

Some Online / Resource-Based Learning Advantages via the 1-to1 Coach Training Videoconference format:
  • Focused learning
  • No time and travel costs to classroom
  • Can be more effective for certain types of learners
  • There are no geographical location constraints
  • You may feel freer to be yourself online
  • Flexibility in course scheduling

Learning via Videoconference 1-to-1 training.
Resource-Based Learning. This approach focuses on providing media-rich resources for learning. Though several advantages are listed above -there are also some disadvantages that have been identified. For example; many teachers who still use the traditional e-learning online format (ie; voice and email only) feel they have lost control over the learning process and that their effectiveness and their contribution to the learning process have been diminished. Teachers have also expressed the difficulties inherent in evaluating e-learning students with traditional individual teaching criteria, especially when it comes to higher cognitive skills and reflective skills. Clearly, online learning is best suited for the disciplined learner and videoconference (via face-to-face, 1-to-1 instruction) is the preferred online format.

Some Learning Disadvantages:

  • Lack of interaction. You are not in a classroom and may not have the opportunity to hear all of the questions and discussion from other students.
  • More time consuming for instructors to provide individualized feedback  
  • Students need to be well-motivated and self-organising learners
  • A lack of peer contact and interaction for students working alone - a feeling of isolation -without the face-to-face classroom environment  
  • If online group class -delayed response from other classmates and/or instructor through asynchronous communications bulletin board/discussion/forums and email

In the traditional TeleClass (voice and email only) there can be no opportunity for the actual practice of techniques under the guidance of an experienced instructor. As such, the course, by necessity, is confined to discussions about theory and the need for a clear theoretical framework, the areas of use of those skills and the hypothetical practice of these skills, but no supervised application of their practice. 

Potential distance learners need to ascertain whether the format for an online coach training course is matched appropriately to the nature of the course content. When studying subject matter such as understanding the principles and benefits of coaching, the course demands will be different than if the content includes learning to administer and interpret assessments tools and specialist coaching techniques. The learner who enrols in the traditional TeleClass may obtain basic skill development, but, no real time supervision of skill practice. It follows that the videoconference format is today's best available learning platform.
 

Coach training via a 1-to-1 (face-to-face) Class Format (one facilitator and one student only)
-
In Coach training, the relationship is the thing
A solid, trusting relationship needs to be established between the facilitator and the student. The facilitatorís ability to
establishing a successful working relationship with the learner, modeling, discussing personal issues and concerns, managing counter transference, and skill building are critical elements of the learning equation. 

Face-to-face learning also means the facilitator can sight any visible cues and barriers that impede learning and produce the highest level of participant satisfaction and accomplishment.  

People work and learn more effectively in a positive, intimate and emotionally supportive environment. 
Using Accelerated learning techniques can take anxiety and competition out of the learning environment and replace them with positive energy, positive speaking and genuine collaboration. Using '
AL ' techniques (face-to-face) simply means the facilitator can accelerate the learning process by working with an individual's preferred learning style. By optimizing the available time, learning is accomplished in a much shorter time. 

Recent research suggests that professional skills development courses, such as coach training, best require a face-to-face connection between the facilitator, participant and the subject matter versus the "traditional teleclass approach" (voice and email). This personal connection provides:  
- a genuine interactive learning environment
- a lively, focused discussion
- the unique opportunity for the learner to spend time developing their own personal skill set and business needs versus a prescribed "packaged" approach to everyone  
 
- the opportunity to question, learn and practice new skills in a safe, supportive and highly constructive atmosphere

In recent years, many human resource development departments and training institutes have become more critical of the results and value of traditional Teleclasses and are replacing the technical skills learning phases in an e-learning program with face-to-face situations via videoconferencing. In this way many of the above disadvantages are greatly diminished.

Videoconferencing -the new proven educational delivery platform for coach training:
Videoconferencing is now a proven distance learning delivery platform.
Today, most people use a computer that has a video camera. This affordable technology now provides students with the opportunity to learn by participating in a 2-way face-to-face communication platform. Furthermore, a facilitator can be brought to classes in remote or otherwise isolated places with students from all over the world. Videoconferencing is a totally interactive medium as students are able to explore, communicate, analyze and share information and ideas with one another.
