Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
Aptara received a prestigious Learning In Practice Award from Chief Learning Officer (CLO) magazine for its design and development of a social learning portal for Hilton Worldwide.
The innovative President’s Portal is a collaborative and continuous learning platform for Hilton’s executive leadership. It enables them to share their expertise to nurture learners’ leadership skills and provides immediate access to relevant knowledge and discussions from a single location.
“Aptara’s ability to design for social learning is creating active collaboration from our employees in different divisions all around the world,” said Kimo Kippen, CLO of Hilton Worldwide. “The result has been increased and widely shared knowledge that is enhancing our organization’s collective intelligence.”
“We designed the President’s Portal with rich visual experiences to enhance learner engagement and incorporated blogs and discussion forums to encourage the participation of Hilton learning executives worldwide,” said Dev Ganesan, President and CEO of Aptara. “One key to its tremendous success is its flexible architecture, which has allowed Hilton to augment the original site for subsequent versions of the President’s Portal.”
The Learning In Practice awards were established by MediaTec Publishing, which publishes Chief Learning Officer magazine, to recognize transformational and visionary leaders in enterprise education and eLearning solutions. More than 200 top learning executives and solution providers were nominated by their peers in 15 categories.
