DebateHall, an eLearning 2.0 company combining enterprise solutions with social media features for leading educators, today announced a partnership with the National Forensic League, designating DebateHall.com as its online video speech and debate solution. Now offered through the NFL – the nation’s largest and most prestigious interscholastic speech and debate organization – DebateHall will help more coaches and students to connect, coach, practice, and compete virtually. The NFL serves more than 112,000 high school and middle school students across 2,800 schools.
“DebateHall is eLearning 2.0 – combining social and digital media to create an entirely new platform where people can interact, discuss, learn and debate a range of topics, anytime, anywhere,” said Steven Atneosen, DebateHall’s CEO. “We appreciate the NFL’s vision to create greater access to speech and debate training, education and tournament resources for students and teachers nationwide, and are proud to offer DebateHall’s solution to help them extend their mission.”
With education budgets shrinking and classroom resources becoming scarce for students and teachers, DebateHall sought to create a new platform that would help ease the financial and technological barriers facing today’s educators. Through DebateHall’s new online eLearning platform, coaches and students will be able to practice more and compete better, regardless of time, pace, and place. By offering DebateHall’s solution, the NFL will be able to better serve their constituents and reach new students, while ensuring access to their leading instruction and tournament resources.
“Our vision is that every child in the United States will be empowered to become an effective communicator, ethical individual, critical thinker, and leader in democratic society,” said Scott Wunn, Executive Director, National Forensic League. “We are excited that this partnership with DebateHall will help us provide greater access for more students to our programs in order to help them develop essential life skills and values.”
DebateHall.com helps people connect, compete and cultivate their social discourse skills. The Web platform is currently offered in two versions, a free social network that allows anyone to participate in digital discussions; and an education platform that provides private and secure groups for educators, institutions, teams and clubs to effectively practice and compete together.
