      Online training is a "new" type of training that doesn't fit into the
      traditional Boy Scout definitions of training. Online training can be seen
      as distance education, where the instructor and the student interact
      asynchronously to meet an educational objective. It contains elements of all
      three traditional training situations (Group training because the
      "instructor" -- the person or team who designed the instruction -- is
      interacting with a large number of students, Personal Coaching because there
      is the lack of group dynamics, and Self-Study because the student works at
      his or her own pace). However, it really is its own creature, and in the
      opinion of many educators, myself included, will be a significant element of
      the education of the future. (Although hands-on training will still be
      important in certain situations --ever tried to teach knot tying through
      distance education?)

      According to the Leadership Training Committee Guide #34269 there are three
      types of training situations in Scouting:

      Group Training
      Personal Coaching

      Where does online training fit? Does it fit into one of these three types?
      Or, is it a new type of training that does not fit the traditional views of
      the types of training we used in Scouting?

      I am curious how all you trainers look at online training.

      Yours Truly in Scouting,
