LAS Celebrates Triple Win at the eLearning Awards

LAS has scooped three awards at the eLearning Awards, including this year’s Outstanding Contribution Award for Managing Director, Rob Hubbard.

Online PR News – 01-December-2015 – Leamington Spa, UK – LAS won gold for ‘Best Learning Game’. They partnered with Marketing Consultancy, Oxford SM, to create an engaging learning game for Vodafone, which has added energy and realism to their face-to-face marketing workshop on maximising the use of customer data. Used in stages throughout the workshop, the game reinforces learning points, encourages debate and allows participants to try decisions out, resulting in a deeper understanding of the importance of data and how it is used. The game is a fantastic example of how learning games don’t need to be expensive and hand coded to be effective.

LAS also won bronze in the category of ‘Best Use of Social and Collaborative Learning Technologies’ Sector’ for a project with one of the world’s largest energy companies. LAS helped them to roll out a methodology for organisation design and provide online opportunities for their people to collaborate and share knowledge and best practice. The project has resulted in significant cost savings for the organisation, has boosted their internal capabilities and helped them to develop and connect their staff. It is now in use over more than 50% of the organisation.

Managing Director, Rob Hubbard, says:

‘We are delighted to have, once again, beaten off stiff competition from the biggest players in the international elearning industry to win these awards, particularly in the categories of social and collaborative learning and learning games, which are at the cutting edge of digital learning.

As a company, we are celebrating our 10th birthday this year. We have always prided ourselves on being at the forefront of new thinking in elearning. This recognition from the eLearning Awards, our industry’s most prestigious awards, reinforces our position as innovators, as we look to the next 10 years and beyond.

None of this would be possible, of course, without forward-thinking clients who are prepared to try something different and kudos should go to them for their vision and support.’
