Learning and talent professionals from the private and public sector cast hundreds of nominations for these honorees. Thank you to the hundreds of users who nominated and voted for this year’s Best of Elearning!

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 percent agree that award recognition impacts their buying decision according to Elearning! Media Group’s research.

“COVID-19 has placed e-learning front and center,” says Catherine Upton, Awards Chair. “Our industry responded with continuous innovation, dedication and service.”

Award of Excellence: AKILI INTERACTIVE STARS-ADHS EndeavorRx

PRODUCT INFORMATION

EndeavorRx™ is the first-and-only FDA cleared prescription treatment for attention in children with ADHD delivered through a digital therapy. Delivered through a video game experience, EndeavorRx is indicated to improve attention function as measured by computer-based testing in children ages 8-12 years old with primarily inattentive or combined-type ADHD, who have a demonstrated attention issue.

SSME presents specific sensory stimuli and simultaneous motor challenges designed to target and activate the neural systems that play a key role in attention function while using adaptive algorithms to personalize the treatment experience for each individual patient.

This enables second by second monitoring of patient progress completing the treatment sessions, and continuously challenges each patient to an optimized level, encouraging patients to improve their performance. Driven by the core belief at Akili that effective medicine can also be fun and engaging, EndeavorRx is delivered through an action video game experience. The captivating experience of EndeavorRx is designed to drive engagement and compliance. Akili has obtained $140.9 million in funding since they launched in Boston in 2011.
