There used to be a trend where fitness shows like Everyday Workout ran in the early morning on TV to help people start the day with regular exercises (notice the second view for beginners). Now we're seeing the phenomenon repeat itself for schoolchildren stuck at home. "Fitness coach Joe Wicks has offered to become the UK's PE teacher by running free classes every weekday for children and their parents to keep fit while self-isolating." I don't know whether people outside the UK can actually access these, but as Wick says in the video, there are millions of workout videos on YouTube. You might think, this isn't online elarning. But this is exactly online learning.
