The 2020 Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in Technology Web Courseworks Wins Silver

Web Courseworks, a leader in innovative learning management systems and virtual event technology, won a coveted Brandon Hall Group silver award for excellence in the Best Advance in Technology for Virtual-Classroom or Conferencing Technology category. Web Courseworks’ win was announced on December 10, 2020, and the full list of winners can be found here.

Web Courseworks won this award for its Conference Now platform, an online event platform that empowers associations to provide a multi-dimensional virtual conference experience. 2020 found associations of all types pivoting annual conferences to the internet, with little time or tech resources available to do so. Conference Now, and Web Courseworks’ virtual event production services, emerged as an easy-to-use platform combining live sessions, pre-recorded tracks, live chat, community building, and more.

Web Courseworks’ clients have benefitted from Conference Now in a variety of ways. They’ve been able to move an in-person event to fully virtual execution, despite tight schedules and budgets. They were able to maintain sponsor and exhibitor value while making the event more accessible to members around the globe. This was all possible while reducing overhead and logistical expenses and providing a unique, memorable virtual conference experience for members.

“Technology is the great enabler of human capital management initiatives. It has never been more important than during this rapid evolution of remote work that challenged everyone to instantly adapt,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards
program head Rachel Cooke.

“Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are critical drivers of their organizations’ success, especially in these disruptive times. Their solutions resulted in substantial benefit to their business and the human capital management function. That is the ultimate differentiator: the positive business impact of technology.”

“The Excellence Award in Technology also emphasizes the value of collaboration between HCM leaders, business leaders and technology developers. To win, everyone must work together to meet the needs of all stakeholders, especially the end-users. Technology Award winners met this challenge and created value for everyone,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Officer Mike Cooke.
