The BMX project team was hosted by CEIPES in its facilities on the third Transnational Meeting of the Training to win – BMX project, to discuss the implementation of the activities, its results, and the next steps of the project.
The two days meeting started with an update on the Intellectual Output 3 “BMX Training Course – Open Educational Resource”, led by CEIPES.
The consortium is currently working to design and develop an integral BMX training course for trainers and coaches, based on evidence and scientific studies.
CEIPES has already created the content in Moodle and during the transnational meeting, the BMX consortium was able to browse the e-learning platform and review all the sections developed by the Italian partners.
All partners are currently working on the translation of the contents and the development of the evaluation tests, in anticipation of the launch of the MOOC course, by the end of 2022.
