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.
