UpsideLMS wins THREE Awards at 2009 Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards It was an exciting moment when Tom Werner of Brandon Hall started announcing the names of the winners for various categories in the online ceremony for the 2009 Excellence in Learning Technology Awards.

We were informed that the UpsideLMS was a finalist in three categories and we were waiting to find out what award we were going to win.

The final tally, for UpsideLMS, after the ceremony stood at an impressive – 1 GOLD, 2 SILVER:

Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Blended or Informal Learning Best Advance

Best Advance in Social Learning Technology Best Advance

Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses Best Advance

Learning Management Technology for Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses

This was the first year of these awards for Excellence in Learning Technology by Brandon Hall and we won in all categories we submitted our product in. You can find the complete list of winners here.

These three categories require an LMS designed specially to cater to the specific needs of customers who are looking for such solutions. The fact that our flagship product – UpsideLMS, offers solutions across these categories just by simple configuration is a major achievement for us. UpsideLMS can be configured to offer a very minimal set of functions good for training companies or small businesses and can also be configured to offer full scale enterprise-scale features including social learning tools for enterprise customers.

I’d like to congratulate everyone at Upside Learning for this achievement and recognition.  This is a major milestone for us and one that motivates the entire team at Upside to work harder and reach new milestones in the near future.

Cheers!
