IN THE AGE OF TECHNOLOGY, IT’S AN ETERNITY

Every year, we here at Elearning! magazine all look forward to tallying the votes for the Annual Best of Elearning! wards. Among thousands of nominations, we see hundreds of brands — many that did not exist two or three years ago. This ear, we honor 73 different solutions, of which 13 are new to the awards program. (See page 25.) To be a multiple-year winner is even more remarkable considering the rate of change. That’s why we launched the Hall of Fame awards last year: to recognize brands that continue to innovate and earn best-in-class accolades from their customers and larger learning community. This year, Adobe Connect and ej4 are recipients of the 2018 Hall of Fame Awards. (See page 40.)

Congratulations to all 73 brands for investing in the advancement of learning technology.

Elsewhere in this issue, the McKinsey Group shares “The Five Trademarks of Agile Enterprises” on page 16. We venture to guess many of the Best of Elearning! winners embrace these qualities. Discover the 23 practices of the agile organization inside.

We are also honored to feature commentary and advice from Learning! 100 award-winners. The 2018 Learning! 100 top-ranked enterprise is Vi. Judy Whitcomb, Vi’s senior vice president, shares insights on how to compete for talent. (See page 12.) Jocelyn Gajeway, from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory — a first-time 2018 Learning! 100 winner — shares how she created rapid development practice for its Mars2020 project. (See page 45.) Hear more from the Learning! 100 winners in the upcoming Learning! Leadership Web Seminars.

TIME TO GO…
The pace of change is not subsiding, thanks to developments like artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality, virtual reality, mobile learning and video learning. However, the time has finally come for me to hand the gauntlet to another Elearning! magazine master — so I can play some senior basketball and softball, and devote more time to my inept Cleveland pro sports teams. Those who know me, know I have retired three times from this great publication, only to return again in varying roles. This time, it’s final. There is no better time to exit than when celebrating our industry’s excellence.

Thank you for the 10 years of support, partnership and celebration. I will miss all of you (especially Catherine Upton, Jim Upton and Kim Mabon). Best wishes to you and every one of our loyal readers and partners. Have a wonderful 2019!
