I think the R & A have done a good job with Rules Academy. 

I have just prepared a piece for my Club's Newsletter. 

Here it is  

I think some people get frightened off easily so that is why I put all the detail in on what to expect. 

 

 Learning The Rules  and Rules Academy
 
The R & A has introduced Rules Academy on its website.
The purpose is educational. “Learn, understand, test yourself, enjoy” is the statement on the opening page. 
Enjoy? Maybe, the rest definitely.
 
Search Rules Academy Golf on your browser or use the link 
 
When you open the link you are asked to provide an email and password. 
After you Log In you can access the learning material.  
You can have a look then or come back whenever you want.
 
Later you  can also do a 50 question multiple choice test to earn  Level One Accreditation. 
Accreditation is not necessary. Do this for interest or perhaps if you think you might want to go further some time. 
 
 Learning is the important thing. The learning material is well done. 
 
 After logging in at the top of the  page find a row of boxes. There are 13 sections each represented by a box. It is easy to navigate.
 
 
Section 1. Learning Material from the start of The Players edition through the Rules 1 to 4;  Diagrams, Photos and Videos
 
Section 2Revision: 10 multiple choice questions based on Section ! . 
 
Sections 3,4 and 5: Learning Material:Rules with Diagrams, Photos and Videos
 
Section 6 Revision:: 10 Multiple choice questions on Sections 3,4 and 5.
 
Sections 7 and 8:  Learning Material: Rules with Diagrams, Photos and Videos
 
 
Section 9 Revision:  10 Multiple choice questions on Sections 7 and 8
 
Sections 10, 11 and 12:  Learning material:  Rules with Diagrams, Photos and Videos
 
 
 
Section 13 Revision: 10 Multiple choice questions on  Sections 10,11 and 12
 
 Once you have an “account” you can log in to the Rules Academy and do as little or as much as you feel like any time. You can repeat any or all Sections.
 
While not necessary you could have a copy of The Player's Edition handy when you log in."    .

I just say my original post.
Sorry for the doubling up of my copy and paste.
I can’t believe edit now, too late.
I wonder if Admin can fix this mistake.

Is that a two stroke penalty under the new rules, or can you take a penalty under a stroke and distance option?

Hey, you’re a candidate for The Rules Academy.

There is no penalty, 10.1a Player’s Edition.

Languid's post was too much to read in one sitting.
Or should that be two much?

Looking forward to reading somebody’s evaluation of the Rules Academy after actually doing something.
One try is enough.

Well. I just wasted 15mins of my life.

Takes WAY too long to sign up.

Then.

You can't just do the tests, or as they call it, revision.

Then, if you get an answer wrong, it says it's wrong but does not tell you why, it doesn't even provide a link back to that info.

Stupid.

Plus. It's basically all words, like the rules book. Lots of people are visual or practical learners. So, why not have images of the situation. Then, have the questions based on a picture of can you do a b or C ... Or whatever.

And.

FFS, why test things like 'when should you check the number of clubs in your bag?' or 'who is responsible for date on the scorecard'

Typical idiotic rules official-dom crap.

F.uk.

No wonder people don't see golf as a sport to take up. Rules and the whole way they are communicated need to be more welcoming and friendly.

Your problem is?

Truth hurt?

I gave an honest review. You don't like it, disagree, discuss the issue, not attack the person.

Your apology?

Hack,
I guess you didn’t get into the material beyond the First Revision.
I understand your point on lack of specific direction when an answer in a Revision Test is wrong. I was a bit disappointed in that. However I realised that would require a reference to The Player’s Edition which would require a link or the book on hand.
A link would require the “student” to endure going to another screen and then back to Revision. Some people would think “I didn’t notice that, I’d better go back and have a look at Section 1 and see if I can find it”.
There is a lot of visual learning material through the learning sections.
Not much visual material in Section 1. I was pleased to see the scorecard graphic showing responsibilities. Good I thought.
I disagree about 14 Clubs question. The question is simple and a good reminder of a long standing requirement.
Well I the Rules Academy doesn’t suit you. One size doesn’t fit all.
You might do well with a one-on-one coach. I don’t think a coach will be easy to find.

Hack,
You could try the TAKE QUIZ in the R & A App.
In Beginner there are 18 visuals with a choice of 2 or 3 answers.
After you complete the Quiz the correct answers are given with a link.
