A Facilitator is someone who can help assist and support the learning experience. A Facilitator might promote dialogue between learners in a group experience.

An Expert is someone who shares their knowledge/expertise throughout the learning experience in order to teach and guide the participant(s). An example of an Expert might be a Coach or a Mentor in a 1:1 experience.
