Distance Learning Coordinators

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Most employers prefer to hire distance learning coordinators who have a master's degree and three to four years of work experience in distance education. The job requires strong knowledge of principles and methods of education and training. Another important requirement is the ability to communicate clearly with different groups of people, from instructors and other faculty members to students and staff. Distance learning educators who succeed in this field are knowledgeable about customer and personal service. They understand the importance of evaluating customer satisfaction and making changes to ensure distance learning program standards meet customers' needs. They are technology savvy and are comfortable using a wide variety of computer systems to process information, enter data, communicate with others, and create and monitor distance learning programs. Innovative people who have integrity, initiative, are reliable and have a good-natured, cooperative attitude do well in this type of field.
