Virtual College, renowned for its online courses and learning management software, has been shortlisted in all four categories for which it entered in the prestigious Learning Technologies Awards 2017.

The shortlisted nominations have been reached following a summer of deliberations by an independent judging panel, comprising over 40 experts organised by the eLearning Network.

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. 

From hundreds of entries, the ’most competitive shortlist yet’ has been determined.

We have put forward both Hayley Khan and John Hinchliffe from Virtual College.
