Established by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiE Awards recognize excellence and achievement in the business software, digital content, and education technology industries through a unique combination of journalist and expert peer review. Nominated products in education technology underwent an intensive review and this year, for the first time, were reviewed solely by educators, who evaluated products through live demonstrations, trial access, and supplementary documentation.
“We’re thrilled to see so many excellent educational technology products making it to this year’s finalist round,” said Karen Billings, vice president of the SIIA Education Division. “We look forward to honoring the winners at our awards dinner in May.”
Higher Reach is a flexible, full-featured, scalable software solution uniquely aligned with the complex needs of any institution that offers continuing and professional education, certificate, or workforce development programs.

“Jenzabar provides an innovative and broad portfolio of products that serve the complete student lifecycle. Our software developed specifically for the continuing education and workforce development, Higher Reach, has allowed colleges and universities to effectively manage a distinct student body with unique learning needs,” said Christian Hartigan, Jenzabar Vice President and General Manager, Continuing Education Business Unit. “With adult and non-traditional enrollments rising, it is a special honor to be recognized as a CODiE Awards finalist for our continuing education offering.”
The winners will be announced on Monday, May 7, at the CODiE Awards Reception and Dinner held each year in conjunction with the Ed Tech Industry Summit.
