Virtual Learning Roles

What Is a Learning Coach?

The learning-coach role can vary depending on the age and needs of the student as well as on the type of online learning program in which the student is enrolled.

In a home-based program, the learning coach is a parent, a family member, or another adult who is at home with the student while the student is going through their courses. If students take their courses at a school, a learning coach could be a teacher, teacher’s aide, or assigned mentor.
