A recent study conducted by NASBLA indicates that nearly 70 percent of boaters are choosing to complete their boating safety courses online. With this in mind, it is important to ensure that students taking an online boating safety course are presented the correct information and that the course is delivered in such a way as to support learning. Researchers from the University of Missouri worked alongside members of the NASBLA Education & Awareness Committee to craft a set of online course delivery and presentation standards that have been included as Standard 10 in the National Boating Education Standards. The researchers share the preliminary results of their research into the efficacy and usability of online boating safety courses which led to the new set of standards.
