22 Fall 2015 Government Elearning! NASCAR on the experience the student has with the LMS itself, NASCAR has witnessed improved engagement and is even begin- ning to think about the learning experi- ence on the individual group level. "We are now using multiple group- specifc branded landing pages, so that dif- ferent people in diferent groups can have customized experiences when they log in," says Masencup. Te fexibility of the system also allows NASCAR to rethink content. "We are designing our courses in smaller, bite-size pieces," she adds. "Gone are the days of hour-long courses where people sit in front of their computers and complete the course. Now, they need easier to download, shorter courses that can be taken anywhere." Te LMS is also mobile optimized, allowing students to complete courses on their own mobile devices as well. INVESTING IN THE FUTURE NASCAR is a sport that heavily relies on technology and innovation. You can see it in NASCAR's new pit road tech- nology that utilizes a state-of-the-art camera-based video system to identify pit road infractions. A move to a fully digital rulebook and streamlined inspec- tion process has given NASCAR and the teams the opportunity for back-end data analysis. Sprint Cup cars will even utilize digital dashboards next season. Lever- aged technology and innovation is also now present in NASCAR's approach to the student learning experience. "In 2014, NASCAR Track Services team members alone completed 84,000 courses through Exceed," says Masencup. And even higher engagement numbers are expected this year, with 53,000 course completions through the frst fve months. "Te great thing about the Exceed LMS is that it is limitless," she notes. "It can grow as needed with users and content, which is a real plus in our world. As we continue to increase our course oferings and look at ways to address training needs, we know Exceed can meet the challenge." 'Each race requires a skilled group of fre, EMS and track operations professionals who are prepared to respond quickly to potential incidents.' —Karen Masencup, NASCAR director of T&D Well-trained mechanics work on David Gilliland's Ford while interested spectators look on.
