I doubt it, but it may not end up being extra time/info on our parts.
Like Kneale said, our hand written info is turned in and then entered into the computer by someone else (who is getting paid to do that). Previously, for group lessons, we had to turn in a class list that had a notes section for each student as well as the runs we skied and skills we worked on. I am assuming/hoping that what we now turn in for Epic Mix more or less replaces our class lists.
Also, last season, we were strongly encouraged to use "pocket coaches" which had a variety of skills, accomplishments, etc on them as well as a note section. At the end of the day, I would summarize what we did and give each student their own pocket coach with some individual feedback. Some students were pretty interested in keeping theirs, while on occasion, they got left behind. Having it online gives students access to this should they leave it in their hotel room, etc.
For privates, we did not have to turn in a class list, so this may mean a few extra admin minutes at the end of the day, but I don't see that as a big deal.
