The 2021 eLearning Learning MVP Awards!
eLearning Learning brings together the best content from hundreds of industry thought-leaders. These awards will recognize the Most Valuable Posts as judged by our readers, award committee, and our machine intelligence and social media. We will recognize the posts that provide the highest value to industry professionals - useful and actionable information, that is tactical or strategic in nature, providing either long-term or short-term value.
Awards will be given for articles covering the following categories:
New & Emerging Technologies
Every day, our articles are read by an audience of over 114,000 people on our site and newsletter. We use our machine intelligence and social media, bolstered by our editorial team, to curate this content.
But as 2021 comes to an end, we want to know: of all of our articles, which are the best of the best? Our machine intelligence, social media, and editors can get us close. But we want that extra special touch that comes from beloved reader feedback.
You can represent these 114,000 readers. Cast your vote and let us know what you like to see!
