Covid education resources for Gaelic Games attract record views
Education resources developed to help members and supporters return to play have attracted record views for the Gaelic Games organisations.
The GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association launched its Covid-19 Club Education Programme four weeks ago to help educate people on their roles and responsibilities within the Safe Return Guidelines for Gaelic Games.
- Guidance documents, user guides, role descriptions and posters which were downloaded almost 750,000 times in total
- A 20-minute eLearning module which attracted almost 600,000 unique visitors
- Three Club Briefings which were watched 65,000 times on YouTube
Uachtarán CLG, John Horan, said: “The uptake with the various resources shows how eager many of our members were to get back involved in their local Clubs in a safe manner. It also shows the continuous demand for learning in our Association and our capacity to meet it. It was a huge logistical undertaking which placed presented a challenge for Covid Supervisors, Club Officers, Players, Mentors and Parents/Guardians. I am grateful to our Clubs for their buy-in, and to our staff and volunteers for their dedication. Much more remains to be done, so we will remain attentive to the needs of our Clubs.”
As of 30 June, the following figures were also recorded:
- The Covid-19 Club Education home page received 359,000 views.
- The Covid-19 Education Resources page received 284,000 views; the total number of downloads for files was 743,000.
- The Covid-19 Online Learning page received over 244,000 views.
In addition, the GAA’s IT function in conjunction with Dawson Andrews - the official Club Management System partner for Gaelic Games - developed the online solution for the Health Questionnaire in a very short time-period. The Questionnaire has been completed 244,000 times and over 2 million subsequent Health Declarations have been recorded.
The Covid-19 Education Programme has been coordinated by the Covid-19 Education Team for Gaelic Games. The educational resources are based on the Guidelines and clarifications set out by the Covid-19 Advisory Group for Gaelic Games.
