Best of Elearning! Awards 2011

The Best of Elearning! Awards program formalizes the informal “word-of-mouth” referrals practiced in our industry. According to our survey, 85% of professionals have personally recommended a learning solution to a colleague over the past 12 months.

Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voices of the enterprise learning and workforce technology market, announced today the finalists of the Best of Elearning! Awards. Readers and professionals from both the private and public sector cast ballots for the best solutions providers across 20 product categories. Winners for each category will be revealed at the upcoming Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo on September 28th, 2011.

“The Best of Elearning! Awards program formalizes the informal “word-of-mouth” referrals practiced in our industry. According to our survey, 85% of professionals have personally recommended a learning solution to a colleague over the past 12 months. And, 61% agreed that award recognition impacted their buying decision,” cites Catherine Upton, group publisher of the Elearning! Media Group.

This year, the Elearning! Magazine Group received 1,750 nominations and recognizes fifty-eight individual products for excellence. A resounding 37% of finalists are new to their categories - a 205% increase over 2010. “Our industry is experiencing a period of innovation and transformation. The introduction of new social, mobile tools and applications is reflected in the number of new brands honored in this year’s Best of Elearning! Awards. These awards are committed to recognizing innovation and user satisfaction across a diverse group of solution providers,” reports Jerry Roche, editorial director of the Elearning! Magazine Group.

About the Voting
Readers nominated and voted for products and solutions via Elearning! Media Group’s online ballot. This year’s ballot featured two new categories: Best Mobile Application and Best Open Source Solution. They joined last year’s addition of Best Video Capture, Production, Publishing. All ballots were cast between May 15th and August 1st, 2011. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. All vendor ballots were voided. Of the 1750 nominations received, 1198 were validated.

Each product named is honored for excellence, and the top vote-getter is named as the winner. “Every finalist is a winner in the Best of Elearning! Awards. Given the high volume of votes and the number of nominated products, every one of these solution providers should be proud to be honored for excellence,” concludes Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group.
