After 15 years, the Best of Elearning! Awards are stronger than ever, honoring 59 individual products across 19 categories. The Best of Elearning! Awards program remains the industry gold standard for excellence. These exceptional brands represent the best-in-class of enterprise learning solutions available in today’s marketplace. Thank you to the thousands of users who nominated and voted for this year’s Best of Elearning!

The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the exclusive Industry Users’ Choice Award, whereby learning professionals vote via online ballot for best-in-class solutions. Eighty-five percent of professionals have personally recommended a learning solution to a colleague over the past 12 months, and this awards program formalizes this personal recommendation process. Award recognition is important for buyers, as 61% agree that award recognition impacts their buying decision, according to Elearning! Media Group’s research.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE NAMED THE BEST

While 59 individual products and solutions have been named as 2019 finalists, 20% of this year’s Best of Elearning! honorees are first-time winners.

“We are honored to reveal the most innovative, creative and effective learning solutions in the market,” says Catherine Upton, group publisher, Elearning! Media Group. “These solutions solve real business learning challenges, according to voting professionals. There is no greater honor than having customers nominate and vote for these best-in-class solutions.”

Among the 19 categories, four companies were multiple category winners:

>> Adobe (LMS – Cloud, Virtual Classroom)
>> Bigger Brains (I.T. Training, Emerging Learning Solution)
>> BizLibrary (Other Learning Platform, Social Learning/Collaboration)
>> dominKnow (LCMS, E-learning Development Tool, Mobile Authoring Tool, Simulation Tool)

All 59 brands will be honored for excellence, and the top vote getter in each category is named the winner. “Every finalist will receive an award of excellence or winner honors. Given the high volume of votes and the number of nominated products, every one of these solution providers should be proud to be voted as best-in-class by their customers,” adds Upton.

THE VOTING PROCESS

Elearning! Media Group readers, practitioners and community members nominate and vote for products and solutions via Elearning! Media Group’s online ballot. All ballots were cast from June 3 to September 1, 2019. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. All vendor ballots were voided.
