Drug Free Sport NZ wins international awards for new learning programme
A ground-breaking E-Learning programme launched by Drug Free Sport NZ (DFSNZ) last month has been recognised with two major awards at the LearnX Impact Awards.
The DFSNZ E-Learning programme won Gold in the ‘Best Deployment of a Hosted LMS’ category and Silver in the ‘Best Bespoke Content Category’ at the Awards - which will be presented at the LearnX Summit in Melbourne in October.
This means that both the operating platform – the learning management system (LMS), and its content, were judged to be of the highest quality.
The Awards recognise and promote the best talent and best work across the world of learning. The judges were impressed with the innovative ideas and solutions presented within the E-Learning programme.
DFSNZ Education Manager Sian Clancy stated “the LearnX awards cover the Asia-Pacific region, so to have Drug Free Sport NZ recognised in this way is exceptional.”
Clancy says the DFSNZ E-Learning programme was almost six months in the making and involved excellent collaboration with Kineo Pacific. It has been designed to reach all sportspeople from all codes who are unable to attend one of the 150 anti-doping education seminars delivered throughout the country annually.
Clancy says she’s thrilled a New Zealand organisation with such an important educational mandate, is being recognised for the quality of its online education programme. DFSNZ is tasked with helping athletes understand the importance of clean sport, educate them about their rights and responsibilities, as well as carrying out a comprehensive testing and investigations programme.
She adds “every New Zealander with a computer or mobile device now has access to anti-doping information and we are hopeful this recognition will aid awareness and result in more and more people completing the E-Learning programme.”
The back-end functionality of the programme impressed the judges with attention to detail one aspect of the programme which really stood out.
The introduction of the E-Learning programme has come at a time when doping in sport is grabbing headlines around the world and the benefits of the programme include how interactive and thought-provoking it is.
Clancy concluded “our E-Learning programme is extremely user-friendly and takes the user through seven key stages of anti-doping education, including the testing process, how to check medications and the ten anti-doping rule violations which could lead to bans from all sport.”
Clancy says there’s now every opportunity for athletes and sport personnel to educate themselves around anti- doping and encourages everyone to complete the course.
