With the inclusion of gaming and interactive simulations in digital classrooms, the role of online facilitation is constantly changing. Online instructors are no longer primarily virtual academic managers and executive technology directors but transformational digital coaches. Digital transformational coaches create facilitation models that inspire and build student trust in a personalized learning community. Online student motivation and engagement increase when online transformational coaches are reflective and empower students to take charge of the learning process. When online leaders provide optional assessment modes that integrate real world connectivity activities, such as the use of apps, student learning outcomes may be enhanced.
