    Mark, One thing we have learnt from our web site is that we need to keep in simple for the instructors. Keeping their info all in one area. Teachers and Coaches Room. This of course would include tutors and trainers.

    • Making a page with the various roles and a glossary of terms, especially for the staffing. https://Lap.SwimISCA.org/roles/

      Agree with the streamline presentation for the learners. I think most of the time the teachers and coaches will be with a focus because of a course.

      Tutors and trainers as well as teachers and coaches need to be explained for clarity.

        Great Points Mark, One thing I would like us to consider, is some on line courses don’t save the work you have done. I think its nice to give students time to come and go. It might be also a very nice touch if it could be done, keep a log of course parts. It some of our programs there are maybe 8-12 modules. So they look at a dash board and its a motivator. Just like my FIT BIT. Showing what they have done, You might have that already set up.

        • Yes. The courses should have a progress bar showing what has been completed. And, there should be a digital badge to bestow to the learner / staffer / student that shows that a specific achievement has been obtained.
