Kate, I think that once the relationship has been built, that followup
using tools like TeamViewer is very practical. That app  has a some great
features, including group sessions, and is free for non commercial use, nd
I am sure there is other alternatives out there just as good.. We have used
Teamviewer as a training and support aid over the past year, but generally
after face to face sessions are done. being able to put a face to the
person on the other end of a remote session is still important IMHO

This leads into the next obvious step where the trainer becomes the Mentor
to a group of people. In the HOT environment, this person could become the
verifier for work done by his group, etc as the connection between
individuals has already been made and feedback on standards for tagging can
be easily communicated
