The Learning Technologies Awards is the leading awards scheme in the industry, while the judging process it uses is led and coordinated by the eLearning Network, based on a 56-strong panel of judges drawn from leading professionals in learning and development.

The Learning Technologies 2019 Awards Shortlist page quotes that, “The awards are so credible because there has always been a very robust judging process in place, one that is entirely independent of the organizers. Awards are only won by the very best because of the breadth and depth of the scrutiny every entry comes under, and the fact that all the judges are chosen for their independence, for their skill, depth of experience and reputation, and for their contribution to and passion for learning technologies.

Mohamed Fahad MJ Al-Thani, Acting Chief Human Resources Officer at Doha Bank shares his excitement on making the shortlist, saying, “UpsideLMS has empowered us with enabling technologies and by combining quality content to create an omnipresent learning experience. UpsideLMS provided us with a very pragmatic and easy to use learning platform. I am very happy we will get the chance to present for this award, and with everyone’s support and inputs we will accomplish the mission to be an award winning team.”

Speaking about the shortlisted entry, Director of UpsideLMS, Amit Gautam, said, “The Learning Technologies awards are one of the most prestigious learning technology awards in the world, and to be shortlisted is an incredible achievement. I would like to thank our esteemed client, Doha Bank, for supporting us throughout the submission process, and last but not the least, the entire UpsideLMS family for making this happen.”
