Perennial contenders GeoLearning, Learn.com, Outstart and SkillSoft lead finalists in balloting for the 2009 “Best of Elearning!” Awards.

Readers and professionals from both the private and public sector cast ballots for the best e-learning solutions providers across 16 product categories. Winners for each category will be named at the Elearning! Summit on Nov. 5.

“The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the only reader’s choice awards in the market, and we are excited about expanding voting to federal, state and local agencies as well as educational institutions,” says Catherine Upton, group publisher of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines.
