Collaborative work in the cloud + audiovisual resources + sport = formative success

Sports organizations have the challenge of adapting to the rapid evolution and transformation of the physical activity and sports sector. The use of visual content in your communication is the key to reach the user according to the new social communication trends. Getting to be agile and efficiently coordinated organizations is also a challenge to achieve thanks to collaborative work in the cloud.

Experiential learning is the key to reaching and building new knowledge. For this reason, the best way to learn the possibilities and resources to work collaboratively in the cloud in sports organizations and the communicative possibilities of visual content in sport is to apply it in the first person.

The work among the members of each group with a common and defined purpose through theoretical and practical work increases the involvement and motivation of the students in the training process. If we add a gamification component to this element, active participation is even more relevant, obtaining good learning results and satisfaction of the formative action above the initial expectations. This form of learning should not only remain in the classrooms of the schools but should be transferred to any training for professionals in any field, also in sports management professionals.

Working in groups in a practical way through Google Drive, Dropbox and other applications such as Trello as well as creating different infographics, images, videos, memes applied to sport have been the methodology used in training Sport 3.0 audiovisual resources and cloud work done by itik consultancy and the Sports Service of the Deputation of Barcelona. The application of this methodology has caused results above those initially expected with a high level of satisfaction and motivation by students and teachers.
