The search for the most inspirational e-learning experience is on.

New Leaf Technologies is hosting its first-ever eLearning Indaba Awards, where corporate Learning and Development (L&D) professionals, HR professionals and corporate trainers stand the chance to win some amazing prizes.

* Media-rich, interactive content;

* Fit-for-purpose didactical approach;

* Learner feedback;

* Learner uptake metrics;

* Success in the context of training ROI;

“We are looking for submissions that explain our entrants’ e-learning journey and how it has made a difference,” says New Leaf Technologies co-founder Paul Hanly.

“Be sure to include descriptions detailing the challenges your team faced, your objectives, processes, team feedback and the final outcome of your project. We want to know why you should win this award.”

Once the judges have made their decision, the winning team will also be able to showcase their submission at the final eLearning Indaba event for 2021.
