Executives Nominate 89 Solutions Across Expanded 27 Categories for Excellence

Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voices of the enterprise learning and workforce technology market, announced today the Best of Elearning! Awards 2014 Finalists. Readers and professionals from both the private and public sector cast more than 3,000 nominations for the best-in-class solutions across 27 product categories. Winners of each category will be revealed in Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines in December and honored at the Enterprise Learning! Summit on Jan. 15, 2015

The Best of Elearning! Awards program formalizes the “word-of-mouth” referrals practiced in our industry. Eighty-five percent of professionals have personally recommended a learning solution to a colleague over the past 12 months. And 61 percent agree that award recognition impacts their buying decision, according to Elearning! Media research.

This year, 89 individual products and solutions are being named as finalists — up from 85 in 2013. “Our industry continues to innovate and evolve. We responded by adding the new categories of Mobile Authoring, MOOC, Game Development Solution and Open Source Solution. We are committed to recognizing innovation and user satisfaction across a diverse group of solution providers,” reports Jerry Roche, editorial director of the Elearning! Magazine Group.

All 89 brands will be honored for excellence, and the top vote-getter in each category is named the winner. “Each of the 89 brands named 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 honored for excellence,” adds Catherine Upton, Group Publisher, Elearning! Media Group.

The Voting Process

Readers, practitioners and community members nominate and vote for products and solutions via Elearning! Media Group’s online ballot. All ballots were cast between March 15 and May 1, 2014. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. All vendor ballots were voided.
