In previous years we processed more than 4,000 nominations, and we expect an even higher volume this year.
(PRWEB) March 17, 2014
Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voices of the enterprise learning and workforce technology market, has announced that the Best of Elearning! Awards 2014 voting is now open. Celebrating 10 years of success, The Best of Elearning! Awards recognizes best-in-class solutions across 27 product and services categories.
Executives leveraging learning and workplace technologies, including readers, practitioners, and community members from both the private and public sectors, are invited to cast their vote for best-in-class solutions starting March 15.
There is no “short list” of brands from which to select. All 100% of the nominations are placed by users in an open format. Unlike other awards events, there is no fee to nominate a solutions provider. The only requirement is that the nominations be made by users of learning and workplace technologies. Winners of selected categories will be revealed at the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo (ELCE) on August 27, 2014, and at the Enterprise Learning! Summit on December 4, 2014.
“There are many new features of this year’s awards program,” said Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group. “Every year our industry evolves, and we add new categories to reflect the innovation. This year, we added Best MOOC Platform, Best Multi-Featured E-learning Solution and two highly distinguished honors for Best New Product of The Year and Best Solution Overall.”
Since 2004, The Best of Elearning! and Elearning! Media Group has honored more than 300 products and services nominated by more than 25,000 executives. In 2011, the awards moved to the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo (ELCE), where the industry continues to recognize and honor excellence.
In 2014, ELCE also offers attendees a much more comprehensive view of solutions that have significant impact. ELCE 2014 hosts a dedicated conference track on Technology at Work, as well as two full day pre-conference programs on “Content Solutions Selection” and “Learning & Talent System Selection.” In partnership with selected solution providers and their Global 2500 clients, executives can see, share and learn how to best source, evaluate, deploy and measure impact of these investments.
The Voting Process
Readers, practitioners and community members are invited to nominate and vote for products and solutions via Elearning! Media Group’s online ballot. The nomination period is March 15 through May 1, 2014 and ballots can be cast at: http://www.2elearning.com/Best_of_Elearning!_Awards_2014.html
New Vote Counting Process
In addition to the four new categories added to the 2014 ballot, The Best of Elearning! ballot counting process is being modified. In 2014, a single product can be recognized only in its most relevant category. For example, an e-learning development tool may have a content management element, as well as Web meeting capability. However, at the core, it is an e-learning development tool and would qualify for that category over the others.
“We expect many votes this year with the new format, new categories and rate of innovation in the marketplace,” said Richard Acello, Editorial Director, Elearning! Media Group. “In previous years we processed more than 4,000 nominations, and we expect an even higher volume this year. We look forward to sharing what buyers and users think about these solutions at upcoming events and in the annual December awards issue of Elearning! Magazine. “
