Teaching Ausport? Then You Need Our e-Learning Hub

According to optimum-direct.com, a $30 increase in productivity is released for every dollar invested on e-learning. Many of us have been forced to adapt to online e-learning programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet efficient online courses are more difficult to execute than many school institutions want them to be.

At Leaders of Evolution, we develop online courses and online e-learning programs that can be effective on the technical side of learning and on various education levels. Our Emerging Leaders in Sport: On-field, and Emerging Leaders in Sport: Teacher and Coach Intro are just a few of our online courses that aid students in learning Ausport and developing the necessary skills to be successful on and off the field. 

E-Learning Hub Partnerships: The Importance of Online Programs 

Leaders of Evolution has partnered with a variety of organizations such as the Essendon Bombers, Snow Australia and the Special Olympics Australia to create and deliver specialized content to help student-athletes, educators and athletic programs grow. But, what is the relevance of online e-learning programs in the wake of social distancing and quarantine orders? And how does Leaders of Evolution stack up to the necessary functions of effective online courses? 

The video below is the introduction to the Special Olympics Australia course that teaches coaches how to properly train participants. This is just one example of how our Ausport partnerships can deliver education and development programs into organisations.

Research Supports e-Learning

According to Harvard Business Review, there are a number of IT infrastructure necessary for remote working to effectively teach students. One concern Harvard Business Review writes of is the digital divide amplified through remote work in a traditional setting. Live lessons that traditional classrooms are trying to mimic through online courses require the best bandwidth, stale wifi and advanced technology in the home, creating a strong gap in the type of education some students get in a traditional setting. We are beginning to see just how helpful non-traditional forms of online e-learning programs are for student-athletes. 

Additionally, on the educator side, Harvard Business Review discusses the discomfort some faculty members are with online learning. “There is a digital divide among those who have never used even the basic audio-visual equipment, relying on blackboards and flipcharts, and younger faculty who are aware of and adept in newer technology,” HBR writes.

When educators and educational institutions partner with Leaders of Evolution, we provide a number of resources and online courses for educators to become familiar with our lessons and provide the highest quality of education and training for their student-athletes, such as our Emerging Leaders in Sport: Teacher and Coach Intro course. When student-athletes are learning Ausport through Leaders of Evolution online courses, educators and institutions are becoming better equipped at recognizing the opportunities students have for growth and how to accomplish those goals. 

Let’s dive deeper into our online e-learning programs and how an e-learning partnership with Leaders of Evolution can make learning Ausport more effective and innovative online. We allow students to easily connect, engage and learn to become the future leaders of tomorrow, today.
