They help develop distance learning programs, oversee the distance learning staff, assess educational goals and needs, and train distance learning staff and instructors in the course management software and other tools and processes involved in distance education. There were about 147,330 instructional coordinators, including distance learning coordinators, employed in the United States in May 2016, according to the Department of Labor.
