LondonLearning NewsLearning Technologies

The shortlist for the 2017 Learning Technologies Awards is announced today.

The annual Learning Technologies Awards has published its shortlist. Outstanding projects and products from across the globe are among those who made this year's impressive, and record-breaking shortlist. An independent judging panel, comprising over 40 experts and organised by the eLearning Network, worked tirelessly throughout August whittling down hundreds of entries.  

Entries were received from a huge range of sectors, including healthcare, pharmaceuticals, finance, transport, utilities, retail, leisure, and communications, as well as national and international government, major public and membership bodies and leading international education brands.

Shortlisted nominees now face the judging panel again in a series of presentations, taking place in London and online, in September and October. And the winners will be announced on 29 November at the gala dinner in London.
