Burnley Football Club’s home stadium, known as Turf Moor, is home to one of the UK’s oldest soccer clubs, but also at the forefront of e-learning. It is home to UCFB which is the first college level institution that is dedicated to the soccer business. They provide a world class study program using world leading facilities.
As a world leader UCFB needed a training solution that was mobile device compatible, universally accessible and mobile friendly, to encourage 24/7 use.
UCFB’s new LMS needed to allow tasks to be assigned and submitted online via a course structure. The LMS will also be a repository of resources (including online library services supplied by Bucks New University), these resources would include documents, videos, quizzes and links to externally hosted content.
UCFB also wanted to use the LMS as a hub for information, so it can promote college events, keep learners and staff up to date on the latest news, and with the ability to provide contact information and information for students on support services. The system would also integrate with the learners’ library accounts, allowing them single sign on access to all critical resources.
The system also needed to fulfill social needs of the institution. Encouraging peer to peer communication and enhancing communication via course level courses and real time instant messaging.
