Orange Sports Forum (OSF) conducted a market research in cooperation with Learning Solutions, on the role of e-learning and blended learning at Dutch sports federations. OSF and Learning Solutions concluded that there are numerous opportunities to implement e-learning and blended learning at sports federations. Therefore the involved companies decided to go on with the next phase of the research. In this phase OSF, Learning Solutions, SportBizz and Firenze Advies will cooperate with a sports provider to develop a pilot version of e-learning and blended learning modules in sports. The sports provider will provide the practical content for the modules, like training schedules, tactics in sports, et cetera.
Currently the involved companies are discussing the possibilities with several sports providers for developing a pilot version for a specific sport. The first pilot version is expected in October 2016. This pilot will show the possibilities of e-learning and blended learning at sports federations. This initiative is supported by the ‘Metropool Regio Eindhoven’”.
