April 2013 – Today the GAA officially launched their learning and development community portal at Croke Park in Dublin. The portal was developed by the Enovation open source solutions team and comprises proven products to deliver a tightly integrated end user focussed portal.
The website (learning.gaa.ie), will be used to publish e-learning content and resources from the Association’s Coach, Referee, Player and Administrator Development Programmes, as well as providing an opportunity for registered users to share and learn from one another.
With such a large membership this site has the potential to become one of the largest community learning portals in Europe. Given its significance to the organization, it was important to select the right partner to undertake the development and to provide support going forward. Enovation are providing a fully managed service including hosting and support.
The integrated components of the solution are:
- Web content management using Drupal
- Learning management using Moodle, and
- A personal portfolio of achievement built using Mahara.
- User validation is implemented through integration to Coaching Ireland.
