BizMedia, publisher of E-Learning Age magazine and organiser of the annual E-Learning Awards, has now published the shortlist for this year’s awards, which are due to be presented in London on 10th November.
Although there are more award categories than ever – 16 – and the awards attracted more than 250 entries, the lengthy shortlist contains relatively few unknown or unexpected names. The Open University, Caspian Learning, Brightwave, QA, McGraw-Hill Education, the University of East London, Kineo, Unicorn Training Group, Epic, LINE, REDTRAY, e2train,Information Transfer and Walkgrove – all well-established organisations in the e-learning world – are there. Three of them are even so well established in the industry that they are sponsors of the awards. There is even a shortlisted nomination for Steve Dineen, now of Fusion International and a long-established ‘father figure’ in the industry, in the ‘award for outstanding individual achievement’ category.
It’s a welcome relief to know that, despite the current challenging economic circumstances, there appears to be so little change in this sector – which has prided itself for many years in being at the forefront of workplace transformation.
