Munich – Thursday, 20th June 2013 – Speexx, the leading global provider of online corporate communication skills training, has been awarded with the 2013 IELA Award for the “Blended Learning” category. The award ceremony took place on June 14th 2013 at the ICELW Conference in New York.

The International E-Learning Association (IELA) Awards are bestowed on an annual basis for the best projects and solutions in e-learning, mobile learning, and blended learning, across two divisions: Academic and Business/Industry. All submissions are evaluated by the IELA Awards Committee who look for a variety of attributes. These include educational soundness and effectiveness, usability, and overall significance.

Organisations from all over the world submitted applications for the highly esteemed award. According to Dr. David Guralnick, Chairman of the IELA Awards Committee, this year’s set of submissions was of “particularly high quality”. The IELA committee, which consisted of experts in the E-Learning field, selected the top nine applicants as winners, runner-ups and honourable mentions. Speexx was chosen as the winner of the “Blended Learning” category for its online language training solution, which combines innovative self-paced e-learning tools with live communication skills training by certified native speakers for Business English, Spanish, German, Italian and French.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
