Finalists are evaluated against three criteria: Aberdeen's Best-in-Class learning and development study, Elearning! Media Group (EMG) learning culture index, and overall organizational performance. The award submissions were open to government, corporate, and non-profit organizations.
This is the second year in a row that the NDU iCollege has received this coveted award.
