    Elearning! Media Group (EMG) partners with analysts from multiple disciplines on the Learning! 100 Awards. Our goal is to host a research-based program that provides organizations a benchmark for future development; is quantitative and qualitative; and is unbiased by size of the organization. The Learning! 100 honor organizations of all sizes that embrace learning culture and technologies.

    Additionally, the learning continues after the winners are announced. EMG reports scores and rankings to each applying organization, as well as profiles and rankings of winning organizations. Key trends, issues and collaborations will be shared in follow-up print, online, virtual and onsite events and educational opportunities. Each subsequent year, organizations can advance their ranking by embracing the post-awards learning events.
