The Learning Technologies Award is presented to an enterprise that has carried out a learning project using either new or innovative learning technologies, or used learning technologies in a ground breaking and innovative way. They must demonstrate high quality outcomes and innovation – in terms of both content, delivery and impact. The project must have made a demonstrable difference for the client and delivered a clear business impact over time. The technology chosen should be new to the Learning and Development industry, not simply new to the organisation.
