Tech & Learning magazine’s web site, TechLearning.com, has been awarded an Education Standard of Excellence in the Web Marketing Association’s 2009 WebAwards. The site previously won the award in 2006.
TechLearning.com scored higher than industry average in six of the seven criteria that each site is judged: design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting, and ease of use. Judges said the site had “excellent content” and was “clean, believable, [and] solid.”They handle the magazine presentation really well; something most sites do poorly,” one judge said. Judges also noted the Tips and Product Reviews sections, as well as the Digital Edition feature on the home page.
The WebAward caps off a banner year for Tech & Learning. In addition to the Standard of Excellence Award, Tech & Learning magazine won two regional gold awards for Best How-To Article and Best Special Section from the American Society of Business Publication Editors in their annual competition.
