: Modern learning support in sports training – The impact of innovative system components on the learning outcomes of the gymnastics course.

In higher education it is essential to consider the learning habits of the current student population and meet their needs accordingly. Since 2012 we have been researching the changes in the students’ achievements in ’Warm up and conditioning’ resulting from the introduction of a learning support system matched to the needs of the Y generation. In the 2012/13 academic year the test results of the full time students improved significantly due to the manifold application of the co-operative techniques. Students’ participation in the lessons became more active, they displayed more awareness and responsibility. In the 2013/14 academic year we started to use films to support the movement learning in general, and the content learning and assessment in particular. As a result of this the results of the part time students improved significantly. Since 2013 we have been using the Moodle learning platform for communication with the students where we created a practice activity bank in the 2014/15 academic year. This makes it possible for students to practice hundreds of activities in ’Warm up and conditioning’ and especially in the exam period they do tens of thousands of activities in Moodle. With the help of the question bank online testing is available, which gives immediate feedback to students right after they have written their mid-term tests. All of the learning support elements of the action research had a positive effect on the effectiveness of the learning process. We are planning to better exploit the continuous peer interaction which is a characteristic feature of the Y generation.
