In order for online education to be effective, however, it must be both usable and accessible for coaches. Usability refers to the overall effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction derived from content and resources. Accessibility means people with disabilities can equally perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with content as well as those without disabilities. Usable and accessible content require different, but specific, design approaches, requirements, and principles. Research suggests that many online learning modules fail to meet basic requirements for both usability and accessibility (Leitner, Strauss, & Stummer, 2016; Pendergast; 2017). In the current study, we will evaluate the usability and accessibility of several online learning modules currently in use by Australian sporting organisations, and provide a set of recommendations for addressing any limitations.
