Tackle Your Feelings online recognised for outstanding learning technologies

words by Tackle Your Feelings, Thursday 8 October 2020

The Tackle Your Feelings program has been rewarded for its online program development, winning two categories at the annual LearnX Live! Awards.

The program’s online learning management system (LMS) was awarded the Best Learning and Development Project and the Best Learning Technology at the 2020 Awards, presented as part of LearnX’s virtual summit on September 17.

Tackle Your Feelings program manager Nick Walsh said it was great recognition for developers Androgogic and the program itself in developing a platform that supports the needs of community football coaches across Australia.

“Building our e-Learning platform was a journey in itself and our aim has always been to provide the best experience for community coaches,” Walsh said.

“Creating the user-friendly platform would not have been possible without Androgogic and I want to thank them in particular for their leadership and guidance on the projects we’ve worked on to date.”

This year there were close to 250 entries for the Best LMS category and 200 entries for the Best Learning and Development Project.

The LearnX awards recognise individuals, teams and organisations who have leveraged learning and supporting technologies in order to deliver value and positively impact business results.

Walsh said he was proud to deliver a program educating community coaches across Australia.

“We want our coaches coming back to our platform multiple times to access resources and support a streamlined journey,” he said.

“The platform is built and designed to best support them in their understanding of mental health and to be recognised with two Platinum awards for our work is something I am incredibly proud of.”

Tackle Your Feelings Australia uses its online system to deliver a short online mental health awareness introductory unit followed by a face-to-face session, which have been run virtually this year due to COVID-19.

The community coach’s journey is then completed with three online deep-dive modules focussed on the specific age group the individual coach works with.

The LMS system is also used to house interactive courses, take program bookings and offer regularly updated resources for members.

The LearnX Foundation is a professional, independent non-profit event management and design agency that operates to amplify the impact of talent development and supporting educational technologies in the future of work through its live summits and award programs.
