Articulate, the leader in rapid e-learning authoring tools, has announced the winners of its 2007 Articulate Guru Awards. The competition was introduced to honor excellence in content creation using Articulate software.
The top prize Gold medal was awarded to Prometheus Training Corporation for their "Office Ergonomics" course. This entry was notable in its clean design and effective integration of Articulate Presenter, Quizmaker, and Engage. "Articulate gives us a reliable platform that is easily accepted in a wide range of client environments. Its authoring tools allow us a surprising amount of creative latitude," said Helene Geiger, President of Prometheus Training Corporation, which designs and develops custom instructional programs.
Articulate awarded the Silver medal to Tom Kuhlmann, a Senior Instructional Designer with Weyerhaeuser, for his scenario-based "AIP Compensation Discussions" course. Kuhlmann's creative design demonstrates Articulate Presenter's ability to extend beyond a traditional PowerPoint-based structure. "The Articulate Rapid E-Learning Studio suite is a combination of simplicity and power...I think that Articulate products pay for themselves right off the bat," said Kuhlmann.
The Bronze medal went to Ah-Ha! Media, a company that specializes in e-learning moments. Their "Laws and Cases of Sexual Harassment" course effectively leverages Presenter, Quizmaker, and Engage into a clean design with easy navigation and a professional layout. "There's no better product on the market for rapid e-learning development," said Chris Bennett, Founder and CEO of Ah-Ha! Media.
"We are thrilled with the many great submissions that we received, and we thank all of our customers who participated. We're continually impressed by the great content Articulate customers create for a variety of uses," said Gabe Anderson, Director of Articulate Customer Support.
Articulate awarded cash prizes to each winner and also donated software to the not-for-profit of the winners' choice. The winning entries can be viewed at the Articulate Word of Mouth Blog.
