There is no better way to describe in one word the partnership between the Australian Fitness Academy and Moodle as they develop a branded Moodle mobile app:
In an interview with moodle.com, James Poynter, Business Operation Manager at the Victoria-based provider of educational programs for aspiring fitness trainers and teachers, discusses the Academy’s decision to invest in a custom, Moodle-based app for their students.
The decision, Poynter admits, “was only logical.” The lifestyle of personal trainers often involves moving between places throughout the day. Surveys by the Academy revealed mobile as the main gateway to access content and submit assignments by students, a trend that is only expected to grow in the future.
To develop the branded app, the Academy chose Moodle partner My Learning Space. They not only designed a Moodle mobile experience that reflected the Academy’s brand, but they tweaked some of the content for an optimal mobile experience. Insights about how their students learn and how information enjoys the best rates of retention led them to focus on podcast delivery. An organized catalogue of text and video also gives quick access to illustrations for them to use during sessions.
