Ohio University partnered with U.S. Integrity and Cyanna Education Services to launch a new sports gambling education curriculum, one of the nation's first online educational programs for legalized sports gambling.
The program is driven by the belief that education and awareness are imperative steps in ensuring the successful maturation of the regulated sports wagering marketplace. OU and USI decided to work with Cyanna Education Services – a proven online education developer and provider – to build and launch the online program.
Fifty years ago when Dr. James Mason brought the idea for an academic program built around sports administration to Athens, one could hardly predict the level of complexity that is involved in the sports industry today. Ohio University’s Center for Sports Administration was founded to serve as a resource to solve the increasingly difficult issues facing the sports industry and serves as a platform, bringing together various constituent groups associated with the Ohio University Sports Administration Program.
“We’re proud to be on the right side of history when it comes to sports-related betting,” said Jim Kahler, Ohio University’s Director of Sports Gambling Education. “This program is going to help educate coaches, students, and administrators on how to prevent, identify, and react to instances of sports-betting fraud. The curriculum has been developed by a talented group of leaders in the industry, and we are excited to bring that knowledge and experience to the field.”
U.S. Integrity is North America’s leading 24/7 monitoring service, providing the highest level of protection against betting-related fraud and corruption. USI’s goal is to ensure that every sporting competition is fair and transparent. The company partners with some of the largest professional sports leagues and collegiate conferences in the U.S., as well as licensed sports-betting operators and regulators, to ensure sports betting integrity in every play, every game, every sport.
“Our goal is to help ensure that every sporting competition is fair and transparent,” said Matt Holt, President & Founder of U.S. Integrity. “This partnership with Ohio University and Cyanna allows us to begin training the next generation of coaches, athletes, administrators, regulators who will inform and influence the future of sports--and help create an environment free from sports-betting corruption.”
Cyanna Education Services was founded in 2008 with the goal of uniting compliance and technology for the education sector, and today supports institutions of higher education, postsecondary schools and corporations to achieve their goals. From online education, instructional media and technology, to state licensure, accreditation and operational consulting-- Cyanna provides an array of education services to clients around the globe. Cyanna’s online education platform, EDlumina, equips schools with the ability to provide a high-quality education experience from enrollment to graduation.
“We created the Sports Gambling Education program to serve all the various stakeholders affected by the legalization of sports gambling,” said Chris Eckles, Founder & President of Cyanna Education Services. “The landscape continues to evolve and we know how important education and awareness are to the future of this industry.”
