Kinetic’s path to a Distributed Learning model will not be without challenges. Here are some issues we face.

    • Kinetic has built its reputation on the value of its instructors. Finding ways to build value in an asynchronous learning environment will present a challenging shift in psychology.
    • Kinetic’s small size is also a weakness, as there is limited staff available to develop and grow an e-learning department.
    • In order to implement an e-learning program, fears of losing high-paying “in person” customers will have to be overcome.
    • Many Kinetic employees fear that economic conditions are not favorable for new business ventures. These fears will also need to be overcome for the program to be successful.
    • IT staff is stretched thin already with two facilities to maintain. Time and resources come at a premium, so having a new program to support will be difficult.
