WebSoft announces the next contest for the best e-learning course developed using the WebSoft CourseLab editor.

WebSoft annually holds an e-learning course contest which attracts the attention of e-learning experts from leading companies and universities. In 2010, 33 e-courses developed in the educational centers of leading companies from Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan fought for the victory.

Participation in the contest allows companies to share ideas, compare their approaches to e-learning solutions with other companies, and receive coveted assessments from the professional community.

Only works produced by experts at corporate training centers and educational institutions are eligible to take part in the competition. Professional course developers evaluate the work.

The subject of submitted courses is not dictated by the contest. Entrants should familiarize themselves with previous contest winners:
1) 2009 entries
2) 2010 entries

Assessment is based on several criteria: the correctness of how course goals and objectives are formulated, the appropriateness of design techniques, the convenience and ease of navigation within the course structure and content, the quality of course design, etc.

A professional jury, as well as members of the WebSoft users community, assesses submitted contest materials.

Prizes are given for several categories and assessed by a professional jury. Also, a Community Prize will be awarded based on votes received from portal users. In 2011, courses created using Adobe Flash will be judged in a separate category.
