The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for 27 years. The awards have over 75 categories and are organized by industry focus of Content, Education and Software.
Established in 1986, the CODiE Awards celebrate outstanding achievement and vision in the software, digital information and education technology industries. CODiE Finalists were chosen from more than 850 nominated products by a panel of nearly 190 judges encompassing technology trade journalists, consultants, educators, IT and product specialists, and other knowledgeable, yet neutral, experts.
This year’s program features 23 Education categories, several of which are new or updated to reflect the latest industry trends and business models. Winners will be announced during a special awards dinner at the nation’s leading education technology conference, the Ed Tech Industry Summit, in San Francisco on May 6.
Here’s what one of the past judges said about Edvance360 LMS-SN:
“Very impressive LMS. Wonderful features and tools to use and much more well-integrated than many of the others I have used. Graphics and UI were very appropriate and I enjoyed working within the application. The reporting features were ‘top notch’.”
"The honor of being a finalist for a fifth year is continued validation of the benefits our clients have already received through our software and support,” says Glen Moriarty, President and CEO of Edvance360. “We have always believed Learning Management Solutions don’t have to be cumbersome or expensive. Streamlined, learner-focused, and inexpensive solutions like Edvance360 provide exactly what educational institutions have been missing.”
“Edvance360 LMS-SN was built entirely from customer requests and creative innovation from our team. Being a finalist for the CODiE award is proof that listening to your clients and responding directly to their needs and wants can lead your company to great things,” said Paul Sanders, Creative Director at Edvance360.
“This award, from our peers, is very important to those of us in the software industry,” said Cathy Garland, Vice-President of Marketing & Sales. “Some awards are given only to paying members, but the CODiE Awards are well-respected because nominations and finalists are chosen by peer judges. We congratulate all our co-finalists and look forward to hearing the winning results. It’s an honor to be a finalist five years in a row. Five years as finalists for the category of ‘Best’ simply confirms this and affirms our commitment to education and technology that facilitates learning.”
“We’re pleased with the innovative educational technology products that made it to this stage. All of this year’s finalists show great promise, and they should be proud of their finalist status,” said Karen Billings, vice president of the SIIA Education Division. “I look forward to seeing them all in May at the Ed Tech Industry Summit.”
