Indiana’s teachers have a new, free tool at their disposal as they face the challenge and uncertainty of remote learning in the upcoming school year.

The Indiana eLearning Lab has been created as an online source to get content and share ideas.

The Indianapolis eLearning Fund, a collaboration of Indianapolis civic, philanthropic and corporate partners, developed the lab and will invest $1.6 million in its operations.

Part of the lab is being funded by the local College Football Playoff host committee and the CFP Foundation. The national collegiate football championship game will be played in Indianapolis in January 2022.

The organizations made an $800,000 gift to the eLearning Lab as part of their legacy program, which they establish in each home city where the championship game is played.

“We’re more excited about this than anything else we’ve ever done because it’s most relevant,” Britton Banowsky, executive director of the College Football Playoff Foundation, told Inside Indiana Business. “We have learned from teachers over the last 90 days that their worlds have been rocked and they’ve had to evolve.”

He said the evolution to remote and distance learning has been hard on parents, students and teachers “but they have risen up and are heroes.”
