Skillsoft Awarded Two Top Awards from Elearning! Magazine

6 January 2010

SkillSoft, a leading provider of e-learning and performance support solutions, has received two prestigious awards from leading US magazine, Elearning! Magazine. SkillSoft has been named the provider of the Best IT Content for the SkillChoice IT Collection and the provider of the Best Soft Skills Training for the SkillChoice Business Collection for 2009.

For the fifth consecutive year, SkillSoft has been named a Best of Elearning! Award honouree. SkillSoft is one of only four companies to have been recognised every year since the program's inception.

Additionally, SkillSoft is being recognised for the second year running as an honouree in both the Best IT Content category and for Best Soft Skills Training.

"We value these awards because they're a reflection of what real customers think and they serve to validate the effectiveness of our content development methodologies," said Julie Ogilvie, Vice President of Corporate Marketing for SkillSoft. "Our products have been developed from the ground up with customer involvement, so this is a sign that we're hitting the mark as far as product quality and service is concerned."

Award winners are chosen by readers nominating products and solutions via online balloting from Elearning! Magazine. The program received 1,755 nominations, more than twice the amount received last year. The December/January issue of Elearning! Magazine will also highlight SkillSoft's wins.

"The Best of Elearning! Awards program is the only reader's choice awards in the market and they offer a great barometer on the pulse of the learning industry," said Catherine Upton, group publisher of eLearning! Magazine. "Reader recognition is growing in importance now that more companies opt to implement e-learning."
