Upside2Go was launched early last year with a promise to offer a unique solution to customers who wanted to leverage mobile technology for learning and training. In a space which lacks both clarity and number of solutions, Upside2Go has successfully created a place for itself with its unique value proposition. This revolutionary platform for Mobile Learning has now won a Bronze award in the 2011 Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Awards in the Mobile Learning category, which clearly reflects its position in the marketplace.
Upside2Go is an innovative solution that addresses this need by bringing formal, informal, social and collaborative learning, and performance support to one central platform - mobile. For the learners, Upside2Go provides them with a mobile enabled environment where not only they can access the training activities in the form of videos, podcasts, eLearning courses, quizzes and evaluation surveys, but it also enables them to use their mobile device to share knowledge with others (within or outside their team) in real-time. Moreover, unlike any other learning system Upside2Go lets users use their mobile device to capture relevant information around them by recording videos or taking photos and sharing it with other users instantly. On the administration side, Upside2Go has a fully enabled engine to generate exhaustive reports on access and progress as well create and manage learning content.
Less than a year back when we had launched Upside2Go at ASTD TechKnowledge, an independent ex-Brandon Hall consultant had tagged Upside2Go as the ‘Best New Product Debut’. Today, Upside2Go has stepped up higher on the pedestal with Brandon Hall Research awarding it a Bronze for Best Advance in Mobile Learning Technology. We are confident that this is only a precursor of many awards to come.

The Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Technology Awards are presented by Brandon Hall Group, a leading research firm in training and development. The Learning Technology Awards program showcases innovations in the products in the marketplace for creating and managing learning, talent, and performance. Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group, commented, “2011 provided us with a unique viewpoint of how organisations are driving business results and performance improvement through technology. This was the year in which technology providers and their clients have been able to transform the power of mobile, social, talent, learning, sales and marketing technologies, with proven, validated results. Most impressive to our judges was an underlying theme around collaborative relationships, a deep understanding of client needs and how technology can be leveraged to create opportunities and operating efficiencies for organisations of all sizes. I am proud to announce these first-rate solution providers as award winners in the most competitive year yet.”
Upside2Go is available on all major mobile learning platforms namely, Android 2.2 (Froyo) and Gingerbread (2.3), BlackBerry OS 5 and OS 6, and iOS 3 and 4, and will soon be available on tablets too.
