Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom, 2011/08/01 - Kaplan Learning Technologies’ (KLT) position as a global leader in collaborative eLearning was further solidified last week upon receiving several top honours at the 2011 LearnX eLearning & Training Awards (NYSE: WPO) - kaplanLT.com / Kaplan.com.
Both STT Trainer and Atlantic Link were Platinum Winners in their respective categories. In addition, STT Trainer took home the recognition for Best Simulation Solution, marking the second consecutive year as the Platinum Best Simulation tool. Atlantic Link’s Content Point received top honours by being named Platinum in the Best Rapid eLearning Tool category, an award it received the previous two years as a Gold-level winner. Atlantic Link was also voted as a Gold Winner in the group for Best Authoring Tool.
“We are delighted to see our two front-line products receive industry recognition once again”, said Kaplan Learning Technologies’ President Brian Sholly. “We are especially proud when we win awards like the LearnX Awards, which are voted on by the people who use our products every day and know them the best”.
Organised by the LearnX Foundation, LearnX is the annual eLearning and Training Solutions International Conference & Expo, held in Australia. The LearnX Awards honour companies that have shown outstanding achievement in eLearning as voted on by peers, customers, and end-users, as opposed to a judging panel.
These honours come on the heels of a separate set of awards received earlier this year when Kaplan Learning Technologies took home two Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards. Those awards include recognition in the Best Advance in Technology for the 2010 release of Atlantic Link 2.0, and an exciting Silver-level award for PerformIT, KLT’s Performance Based Testing Solution, in the Best Advance in Technology for Testing or Evaluation. This was a first-ever award for PerformIT.
