Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voice of the $160 billion enterprise learning market, are inviting readers to nominate their solution providers for its Best of Elearning!

Nominations of technology and solution providers can be made by going to http://www.b2bmediaco.com/fileadmin/php/ballot.php
The balloting period officially opens today and runs through August 1, 2012. "The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the only reader’s-choice awards in the market. This audience represents $160 billion in learning services and technology investment, and the awards program honors vendor excellence," reports Catherine Upton, Group Publisher of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines.
Eighty-five percent of Elearning! Media Group’s respondents have recommended an e-learning product or solution over the last 12 months, according to an Elearning! survey. And, 61 percent of the respondents said award recognition impacted their decision to consider and/or purchase from honored vendors. The Best of Elearning! Awards formalize the informal peer recommendation process by publishing the recommendations of the e-learning users and honoring the “Best-in-Class” solutions. Every award nomination and vote comes directly from e-learning users and professionals.
