Edmonton, Alta. (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Global eTraining today announced that its innovative approach to online training, GeT Interactive, was named a finalist for the 2014 SIIA Education CODiE Awards for Best Corporate Learning/Workforce Development Solution and Best Virtual Learning Solution.
With 25 years of experience in technology-based learning, the Global eTraining team brings a unique perspective on instructional design and educational psychology. Global eTraining’s interactive training reaches students with varied learning styles through text, audio, demonstrations, exercises, and videos, engaging all the senses and anchoring learning with action.
“We design our templates to replicate the best classroom experience, like the one you remember your favorite teacher delivering,” notes Holly Brattberg, Co-Founder and CFO at Global eTraining. “Understanding how we best learn, remember things we’re taught, and how we best retain information, is key to the effective learning outcomes connected with GeT Interactive.”
Through Global eTraining’s world-leading technical training platform, learners can access industry-specific courses wherever and whenever they want, subject-matter experts can easily create and customize content, and administrators can efficiently track and manage performance. The recently-released Generator custom course development tool is simple enough to allow experts to create robust, multi-modal training themselves, making it far faster and easier for organizations to quickly distribute standardized training across any number of learners – from tens to tens-of-thousands.
“We’re honored to be part of the 2014 SIIA awards,” says Susan Brattberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Global eTraining. “There are a number of amazing finalists in every category and it’s thrilling to be recognized alongside these leading global educational technology firms, such as Adobe, Blackboard and Pearson.”
“This year’s finalists are breaking ground with new business models and innovative products. We are pleased to recognize the best in educational technology with these 119 products,” says Karen Billings, Vice President of the SIIA Education Division. “I look forward to honoring them all in May at the Education Industry Summit.”
