Best of Elearning!

The Best of Elearning! Awards program formalizes the informal “word-of-mouth” referrals practiced in our industry. According to our survey, 85 percent 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 2012. Readers and professionals from both the private and public sector cast ballots for the best solutions providers across 21 product categories. Winners for each category will be revealed at the upcoming Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo on September 26, 2012.

“The Best of Elearning! Awards program formalizes the informal “word-of-mouth” referrals practiced in our industry. According to our survey, 85 percent of professionals have personally recommended a learning solution to a colleague over the past 12 months. And 61 percent 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 3,881, a 221 percent increase over 2011. Seventy-two individual products are being recognized for excellence; up from 58 in 2011. “Our industry is experiencing a period of innovation and transformation. The introduction of new social, mobile solutions and learning and talent software is reflected in the number of honorees 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.

The Voting Process
Readers, practitioners and community members nominated and voted for products and solutions via Elearning! Media Group’s online ballot. This year’s ballot featured two new expanded mobile categories: Best Mobile Application and Best Mobile Authoring Tool. They joined last year’s addition of Best Open Source Solution. All ballots were cast between May 15 and August 1, 2012. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. All vendor ballots were voided.

Each finalist is honored for excellence and the top vote-getter in each category is named 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.

Award Winners Announcement
The winners will be named at the Best of Elearning! Awards Luncheon held at the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo (ELCE) on September 26, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Irvine, CA. The conference will also feature Best of Elearning! sessions showcasing winning solutions to prospective buyers. To learn more about ELCE and the awards program, visit: http://www.elceshow.com.

In addition to the awards program at ELCE, each honoree will also be featured in Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines’ November/December 2012 editions. “The awards issue is by far the most popular edition of the year.
