Tracy Bissette, M.Ed., co-founder and President of WeejeeLearning, was awarded Best of Show, Non-vendor, at this year’s DemoFest, part of the eLearning Guild’s DevLearn 2011 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
DemoFest entries are voted on by e-learning professionals who attend the DevLearn conference. This year, over 1,700 conference attendees had the opportunity to see 86 unique solutions to common e-learning challenges and to speak with each entrant to learn about the tools, technologies and processes they used to build them.
Bissette’s entry, “Fire Door Inspections: Understanding the Fire-rated Opening,” designed for the Door Security & Safety Foundation, was created to educate fire marshals, code officials and insurance officers across the U.S. on the proper way to inspect fire-rated openings in commercial buildings. This authentic, practice-based course simulates real-world inspections and is designed to improve safety and save lives.
“I’m extremely honored to be recognized for our work with the Door Security & Safety Foundation on their first e-learning initiative,” says Bissette, the project’s instructional designer and project manager. “One of the challenges was designing the course to be user-friendly for an audience that may have little prior e-learning experience. WeejeeLearning’s team of developers and graphic artists really helped pull this together.” A demo of the winning entry can be seen on the WeejeeLearning website.
This award represents a significant achievement for WeejeeLearning. The company, a custom learning company founded in 2010, was formed to help corporations and organizations address economic and productivity challenges. “Our mission is to take what we understand about the science of learning and combine it with our technology expertise to develop innovative and effective learning solutions,” says Bissette.
