Elearning! Opens Nominations for Best of Elearning! 2010 Awards

Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voice of the $160 billion enterprise learning market, have expanded its Best of Elearning! Awards for 2010. This year, the Best of Elearning! Awards program hosts two distinct ballots for the public sector and corporate sector reader. Plus, executives can nominate vendors across more categories.   

The balloting period officially opens today and runs through Sept. 30, 2010. In its sixth year, the Best of Elearning! Awards are the exclusive reader’s-choice awards program for enterprise-wide learning products and services.

"The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the only reader’s-choice awards in the market, and we are excited to host separate nominations for the public and private sectors, “reports Catherine Upton, Group Publisher of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines. “Altogether, this audience represents $160 billion in learning services and technology investment, and the awards program honors vendor excellence."

Eighty-three percent of Elearning! Media Group’s readers recommended an e-learning product or solution over the last 12 months, according to an Elearning! survey. And, 61 percent of the respondents said award recognition impacted their decision to consider and/or purchase from honored vendors.   The Best of Elearning! Awards formalize the informal peer recommendation process. Every award nomination and vote comes directly from e-learning users and professionals.

New, Expanded Categories

In addition to separate ballots for the public and private sectors, the awards program has also added new categories.  The corporate executive can nominate vendors across 23 separate categories. Four new categories have been added; translation/localization services, outsourced content development, outsourced consulting services, and video tools. The government executive can nominate solution providers across 25 categories, three new to the ballot; 3D solutions, telepresence and business simulation.

Voters are limited to one complimentary ballot and must use company domain e-mail addresses for validation. Nominations close on Sept. 30, 2010 at 11:59 PM PT.

Determining the Winners

At the end of the nomination period, the ballots are counted by Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines’ editorial team. All vendor ballots are nullified, as well as duplicates, incomplete or invalid ballots.

In 2009, Elearning! received over 1700 nominations. The 2010 Best of Elearning! finalists will be announced in October 2010 and winners named at the Elearning! Summit 11.04.10 virtual trade show.

“Readers can see which products are leaders in each category, and read personal testimonials from real-world users of the winning products,” says Jerry Roche, Editor Director, Elearning! Media Group.

“The Best of Elearning! Awards will continue to honor the best and the brightest among hundreds of solutions providers. We look forward to another opportunity to honor innovation in this dynamic industry,” concludes Upton.
