Government Elearning! Winter 2016 27 BY JERRY ROCHE AND CATHERINE UPTON Te 2015 "Best of Elearning!" awards honor best-in-class solutions across the learning and technology marketplace. Celebrating their 11th year, the awards received more nominations for more brands in more categories than ever. Best of Elearning! awards are the indus- try's exclusive users'-choice awards. All nominations are made directly by users of solutions. More than 4,000 nominations were received in 2015. "Given the number of nominations, to make the list in 2015 is quite an honor," says Catherine Upton, Elearning! Media Group's publisher. "Tere is no better honor than to be nominated by users and customers of these best-in-class solutions." Te Best of Elearning! awards program was frst implemented to formalize the rec- ommendation and purchase process for the e-learning community. Research indicated 85 percent of readers had recommended an e-learning solution to a peer over the most recent 12-month period, and 61 percent claimed that award recognition "impacts their decision" to consider a product or service. Te "Best of E-learning!" program formalizes this referral process. BIG WINNERS Multiple winners this year are BizLibrary (three), ej4 (three) and Adobe (two).
