The eLearning Guild Announces Immersive Learning Simulations (ILS) Memberâ€™s Choice Awards.’The eLearning Guild announced today (February 6) the winners of the new eLearning Guild Members Choice Awards for Immersive Learning Simulations (ILS). The awards are announced in conjunction with the publication of the Guildâ€™s premier Guild Research 360o Report on Immersive Learning Simulations (ILS) which focuses on the demand for, and demands of, simulations, scenarios, and serious games for learning.
â€œWe wanted these awards to have a lot of credibility, and not just represent the opinions of a handful of people,â€ said Steve Wexler, the Guildâ€™s director of research and emerging technologies. â€œMore than 4,600 eLearning Guild members have told us which tools they use and have told us what they think of these tools and the awards were based on the opinions of these e-Learning professionals â€“ professionals that are passionate about e-Learning.â€
There are two types of awards; the Platinum Award goes to the top performer in each category, while the Gold Award goes to the next four top performers in each category. The data upon which these awards are based is â€œlive and always up-to-dateâ€ â€“ which means that as Guild members are creating or updating their member profiles, the quantity and nature of data are actively changing. For these awards, a â€œsnap-shotâ€ of the data was taken on January 21, 2007.’
