Eagle360 promises to be a ‘student-centric’ toolkit for our student-athletes, one that can help them achieve personal as well as academic success while helping them juggle all of their responsibilities as Division I athletes
(PRWEB) June 23, 2016
Evolution Labs announced today that Florida Gulf Coast University has selected its SA360 platform to help student-athletes increase their chances of personal, academic and athletic success. SA360 provides student-athletes with engaging mobile app and web-based content on topics ranging from NCAA compliance to health and wellness to academic skills. Athletic advisors and coaches will use the tools and content in the program to better support players throughout the athletic season and academic year.
“Eagle360 [FGCU’s personalized version of SA360] promises to be a ‘student-centric’ toolkit for our student-athletes, one that can help them achieve personal as well as academic success while helping them juggle all of their responsibilities as Division I athletes,” said Kathy Peterson, Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Services and Senior Woman Administrator at FGCU. “Athletes’ busy schedules can make finding the time to engage in new content or curricula very challenging. Eagle360 enables them to learn and interact on their own time, which we believe will increase the likelihood that student-athletes will utilize it.”
SA360 covers important success topics, including mental health, study and test-taking skills, drug and alcohol use, sexual assault, NCAA compliance and career preparedness. It utilizes pulse surveys, social media, interactive self-tests and digital video to keep students returning for fresh content. FGCU plans to debut the program to all of its athletes this summer.
“As a Division I institution which fields a number of highly competitive men’s and women’s teams, FGCU understands the importance of delivering success content when and where students want it,” said Tracy Howe, Co-founder at Evolution Labs. “SA360 connects with students where they are most comfortable--at their desk or on a bus traveling to an away game--while also tracking the extent to which athletes engage in content and achieve associated learning outcomes.”
