Corona, CA, United States, 2009/10/12 - Collaborative Rapid e-learning Innovator honored in 3 categories - ‘Rapid Development Tool’, ‘E-learning Development Tool’ and ‘Simulation Tool’.
Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines, the industry voices of the e-learning market, announced today the finalists of the 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.
Atlantic Link is delighted to announce that they have won 3 Excellence Honors for their collaborative rapid e-learning tools – ‘Content Point’ and ‘Capture Point’.
“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,” reports Catherine Upton, group publisher of Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines.
This year, the Elearning! Magazine Group received 1,755 nominations, twice the volume of last year’s program, making each category very competitive. Fifty-five individual products will be honored, of which 21 are new to their category. “These awards continue to recognize innovation and user satisfaction across a growing number of solution providers,” cites Jerry Roche, editorial director of the Elearning! Magazine Group.
About the Voting
Readers nominated and voted for products and solutions via Elearning! magazine’s online ballot. This year’s ballot featured four new categories: Best LCMS, Best TMS, Best Rapid Development Tool and Best Social Learning Tool. All ballots were cast between August 1 and September 30, 2009. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. All vendor ballots were voided.
“Every finalist is a winner in the Best of Elearning! Awards. Given the high volume of votes and the number of nominated products, every one of these 55 solution providers should be proud to be a finalist,” concludes Upton.
Every honoree will also be featured in Elearning! magazine and Government Elearning! magazine publishing in January 2010. “Not only will readers of the issue see what products are leaders in each category, but they can read personal testimonials from real-world users of these winning products,”
Atlantic Link’s CEO Tony Reddington commented “To get into the finals and win 3 Excellence Honors is an incredible achievement for Atlantic Link. The fact that we’ve now been honoured in the 3 categories that we focus on - ‘‘Rapid Development Tool’, ‘E-learning Development Tool’ and ‘Simulation Tool’.- is especially pleasing. This shows that we’ve got an integrated solution for rapidly and collaboratively creating any kind of e-learning content.
Our rapid e-learning tools (atlantic-link.co.uk) continue to prove what we’ve known all along – that they are the most comprehensive and innovative authoring solutions on the market. When a training specialist takes a look at Content Point for example, they are amazed at the clout of the PowerPoint conversion wizard, the issue management/collaboration tool, the Section 508 compliance and the incredible ease of use. We’re very proud to be honoured,”.
