edWeb.net Wins CODiE for Best Professional Learning Solution
edWeb.net was named the Best Professional Learning Solution for Faculty and Administrative Staff of 2017 as part of the annual SIIA CODiE Awards. CODiE Award recipients are the companies producing the most innovative business and education technology products across the country and around the world.
Lisa Schmucki, the founder of edWeb, commented, “Our professional learning is all about collaboration, so this award is the result of a team effort on the part of edWeb, our sponsors and partners, our edWebinar presenters, and the educators who so generously share their time and knowledge to participate in professional learning and support their peers all around the world.”
edWeb just released a case study that shows how edWeb provides a free professional learning solution that is engaging and personalized, and aligned to the goals and standards for effective PD.
An SIIA CODiE Award win is a prestigious honor as each award winner was reviewed by educators and administrators, whose evaluations determined the finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and their votes were combined with the scores from the industry experts to select this year’s CODiE Awards winners. edWeb has won a CODiE three years in a row. In 2015 and 2016 edWeb won the award for Best Collaborative Social Media Solution for Educators. That category was dropped this year.
The winner announcement was made by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, during the annual Education Impact Symposium in San Francisco. There were 35 awards given for products and services specifically for education and learning professionals.
“SIIA’s 2017 Education Technology CODiE Award winners were an amazing group this year, and demonstrated how these technologies are making an impact for students, faculty and administration,” said Bridget Foster, senior vice president and managing director of the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN) of SIIA. “Each honoree deserves accolades and we are pleased to add our congratulations to all of this year’s CODiE Award winners.”
