SoftChalk Experience with the 2010 CODiE Awards

"And the winner is...SoftChalk" - as we heard our name announced at the CODiE awards ceremony, we felt excited, proud and awed by the recognition of our peers. SoftChalk has been fortunate to win 'Best Postsecondary Instructional Solution' and 'Best Education Technology Solution for Productivity/Creativity' for the past two years.

When we entered the competition, we were hopeful that we might win, but we knew there would be many worthy competitors. Like all busy companies, we were uncertain whether the time commitment to complete the award process would be a worthwhile investment. But the prestige of the CODiE award convinced us to apply.

Submitting the initial application was straightforward. The CODiE staff did a great job answering questions and guiding us through the process. During the judging, we conducted online demonstrations of SoftChalk and encouraged the judges to download our 30-day free trial. The time commitment was small in comparison to the benefits. In addition to the honor of the awards, we benefited from the judges' insightful feedback on our product. We also feel the CODiE process promoted the exposure of SoftChalk.

Our goal at SoftChalk has always been to provide users with a high-quality, easy -to-use content authoring solution. It is a privilege to be honored by others in the education technology industry. We look forward to next year's competition.
