College Athletic Departments across the country have migrated towards E-Learning to engage with their student-athletes as COVID-19 continues to affect our everyday lives. Schools have embraced the thought process that distance learning has shifted from a “nice to have” to a ”must-have” in every aspect of education.
According to the World Economic Forum, around 1.2 billion children globally have been shut out of classrooms due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Learning Management Systems around the world have stepped up to fill the gaps. From Financial Literacy to Social Justice and COVID-19 prevention courses, the Game Plan software alone has seen a 185% increase in usage year-to-date.
Congrats to these ten schools leading the way for Student-Athlete Development in 2020!
