Elearning! Magazine, the voice of the enterprise learning market, announced today the recipients of Best of Elearning! Awards for 2008. More than 845 nominations were made by executives for the Best of Elearning!, of which, 43 solutions from 23 companies were honored. Atlantic Link is delighted to announce that they have won 2 Excellence Honors for their collaborative rapid e-learning tools – ‘Content Point’ and ‘Capture Point’.
From Best Learning Management System to Web Conferencing Solution, these products rank as "Best in Class" according to executives and users of e-learning solutions. "The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the only readers’ choice awards in the market," reports Catherine Upton, Group Publisher of Elearning! Magazine. "Recognition of this type is increasingly important as more companies deploy e-learning initiatives to impact business and improve efficiencies,” concludes Upton.
In a recent poll of attendees at the Elearning! Summit, 83% of respondents said they recommended e-learning solutions to peers over the last 12 months. And, 61% of respondents said “award recognition impacts their decision to consider or purchase from honored vendors.” “The Best of Elearning! program offers professionals a reliable resource to learn from users and gather information that influences their future purchases,” reports Upton.
“To get into the finals and win 2 Excellence Honors is a superb achievement when you consider the relatively short amount of time we have been trading in the US. The fact that we’ve been honoured in the 2 categories that we focus on - ‘Best Web Authoring Tool’ and ‘Best Simulation Solution’ - is especially pleasing. We’re the only vendor in both categories, showing that we’ve got an integrated solution for rapidly and collaboratively creating any kind of e-learning content.
Our rapid e-learning tools 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,” said Mike Alcock Managing Director for Atlantic Link.
Of the 43 products named, 41% are new to the Best of Elearning! Awards program. “The innovation and vitality of the e-learning market is evidenced by the high number of new products being honored,” reports Upton.
