Frank Siepmann, editor-in-chief of the eLearning journal, presented the award to Dirk Burkamp (PwC) and Folkert Nommensen (TIS) on February 20th as part of the Didacta 2013 trade fair in Cologne.

The eLearning Awards recognize the best project consortia and the most innovative projects in 26 categories, ranging from Adventure Based Learning and Workplace Learning to Blended Learning and Learning Management Systems.

"We are very happy to receive this award; it would not have been possible without successful cooperation with PwC, our project partner," said Saurabh Mittal, Managing Director of TIS Germany. He explained that "to help learners identify with the subject, the modules are created as a scenario-based storyline that picks up the world of the learner."

The program's learning objectives were 'Understanding of the Business Area' and 'Understanding of Clients and their Requirements'. About 1100 PwC employees will complete this program annually.

The winning projects in 2013 are characterized by cutting-edge innovation, sustainability and their viability to meet future educational challenges. It was therefore important that the project demonstrated how it could incorporate the latest trends in various corporate and educational sectors, as well as technological trends.
