Alberta Association of Recreation Facility Professionals (AARFP) provide excellence in training and professional development for people who operate recreation facilities.
Kim Snell, the Executive Director, described two challenges faced by students in their training program. “Because materials aren’t consistent in their formatting and layout, learning the content is more of a challenge and takes more time.”
The first challenge was to improve the consistency and professionalization of their paper materials.
Secondly, although a small association, Kim believed that stepping out to produce one online course as a pilot would address three key goals:
- Improve access to a broader market
- Improve interactivity
- Improve the instructional design of the content
