I am looking to create a best practices guide for types of content that are appropriate for e-learning and those that are not. I am the director of education for a fitness company, in charge of education for our personal training teams. There has been a push toward using more e-learning to save on the cost of live class instruction. Given that the role of a personal trainer is very technical and hands-on, I struggle to see how you can build a quality trainer without live class instruction and guidance.
I would love to get some thoughts or resources on criteria for determining whether an online or live experience is best. We do actively use e-learning already to cover theory, I just want to avoid using it too much or in the wrong manner.
