Speexx wins eLearning Award 2014

Leading e-learning association rewards global online language training platform

Munich - Wednesday 5th March 2014 - Speexx, the leading global provider of online communication skills training, has secured the German eLearning Award 2014. The award goes to the Speexx language training solution which was implemented for a leading biopharmaceutical company. The official award ceremony will take place on 29th March 2014 at the didacta in Stuttgart, Germany, the largest international trade fair for education and training.

Now in its fourth year, the eLearning Award 2014 selects outstanding state-of-the-art e-learning and educational projects and showcases them as best practice examples. The eLearning Award judging panel assesses projects in terms of their user-friendliness, technology, learning content and overall value for the customer.

This year, more than 100 e-learning providers and their partners submitted applications from all over Europe for the eLearning Award. The judging panel consisted of renowned experts from the e-learning and educational industries. Speexx was chosen as the winner of the 'Language Training' category for its Speexx Live solution, which has been helping its customer boost staff business communication skills since 2010. Speexx allows employees from different departments to focus on their job-specific language needs, while helping HR managers to monitor their workforce's learning progress. Speexx Live combines self-paced e-learning tools with live communication skills training in the virtual classroom, as well as ongoing support and motivation by personal coaches. Several hundred students at the pharmaceutical company's worldwide offices currently use Speexx to improve their foreign language and business communication skills.

"We are very proud to receive such a highly acclaimed award", says Armin Hopp, Founder and President of Speexx. "Winning the 'Language Training' category shows that we are setting the standard in delivering excellent foreign language and communication skills training to organisations worldwide. On behalf of Speexx, I would like to thank our partner for trusting in our solution and of course, the entire eLearning Award 2014 judging panel for selecting our project as a winner."
