TrackMan Introduces Adaptive e-Learning Platform

TrackMan has teamed up with Area9 Learning which is a leader in adaptive learning systems. Area9 Learning and McGraw-Hill Education have revolutionized personalized education through technology that can speed up learning and improve retention.

To paraphrase Area9, “Adaptive learning is in essence about making digital learning and knowledge fit the individual learner. The adaptive technology measures each learner and how much the learner knows at any given time, and then adapts in the moment.” Put differently, the learner is always confronted with the right learning material, at the right time, in the right format.

Along with this online, adaptive engine, TrackMan has also developed a plethora of new, powerful content. Topics include the basics of Ball Flight Laws, Course Management and TrackMan’s Fundamentals. This state-of-the-art content is presented in various formats, from video and animations, to interactive “calculators” that help explain the game in new, innovative ways.

Parallel to this new, e-learning platform, TrackMan has developed new in-class workshops, completing the Blended Learning experience. Blended Learning takes the learner through a one-part theoretical (online), one-part practical program, where the hands-on workshop ensures newly acquired knowledge is applied in live “business cases”.

For professionals, TrackMan also offers certification programs. These programs accelerate careers of high-potential coaches and fitters. Benefits include access to TrackMan’s Worldwide Locator Network, branding opportunities and unlimited access to workshops.
