Traditionally, learning has been done in a classroom environment with a teacher/lecturer/coach presenting the new information to the students. While this may include some group discussion, the majority of the lesson is often spent with the student listening to, reading and/or writing down the material. This is known as Passive Learning, and is still very common in today’s learning environment.
If you’re a coach – whether that’s a life coach, a business coach or a dog-training guru – you may find that you’ve reached a plateau with your business. After all, there is a limit to how many clients you can work with at a time.

Traditional means of training such as group training often take a long time. It costs a high amount of money and the learning experience might not be the same for everyone. Online training is a quicker and more cost- and time-effective alternative. People can learn and build skills anytime, anywhere.

Online training can include videos, presentations and documents such as PDF files.
