Let us take a deep breath first!
If we have overused our superlatives in describing any previous contests on this forum, we will like to take it back, and place it here, as what we have witness in these last few weeks on elearning.adobe.com/projects page was nothing short of a phenomenon. This has also left our judges in a tizzy in scoring easily, due to the sheer professional quality of projects that all have created through the Adobe Captivate authoring tool.
Kudos to each and every one and take a bow! This has been by far the very best set of projects we have received and it looks difficult to be overshadowed for sometime for sure. This was also our first-ever global engagement and we saw participation form almost every continent in the world. A bit shoutout to our partner — eLearning Industry, for collaborating with us, in creating this property in scouting for the best in the field of eLearning! I am sure this synergy will benefit many such talent waiting to make a mark in the field of eLearning through this recognition.
The competition that commenced on January 21, 2021 saw a whole plethora of projects ranging from augmented reality, dementia, preserving a disappearing dialect, workplace ethics, breast cancer awareness to planning a trip to Japan! Every project offered a variety of points of view on diverse topics and delivered a refreshing eLearning experience that strengthened our vision in delivering the best digital learning experience via our tools. The entries stood proof of the fact that learning can always be fun with the use of the right tools and a little imagination!
We would like to reiterate that while the participants gave their best shot, they sure didn’t make it easy for our experts to rate and choose the winners! It came down to the wire for many. This contest shall forever remain for us for a long long time, a tribute to the top-notch creativity of each and every participant!
