MindConnex Learning shortlisted for Digital Media Awards for Best in e-Learning

altMindConnex Learning, the global providers of digital learning software for the secondary level education sector, has announced today that it has been shortlisted by the Digital Media Awards for the Best in eLearning category for its Shakespeare In Bits series.

The awards, which will take place in the Dublin Convention Centre on March 30th, aims to recognize and celebrate excellence in all aspects of digital media, providing companies of all sizes - multinational corporations and start-ups alike – with an equal chance to showcase achievements.

According to Michael Cordner, CEO of MindConnex Learning, “It is an absolute honor to be shortlisted for the Digital Media Awards for Best in eLearning. At MindConnex Learning, we strive to revolutionize the way in which teachers and students interact with traditional content by providing them with a platform to bring text alive in the classroom and to provide a more engaging and personalized learning experience”.

Shakespeare In Bits is a multimedia approach to tackling the works of the Bard that fuses animation, high-quality audio and original unabridged play text with the ability for students and teachers to translate key words and phrases into modern-day meaning, access integrated, in-depth notes and analyses, as well as read each character’s biography and view their relationships with other cast members with an illustrated character map.

The series currently includes four plays – Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream – with the company working on producing Julius Caesar for a mid-year launch.

Last month, MindConnex Learning was awarded the Readers’ Choice Awards for best K-12 edtech product for its Shakespeare In Bits series by eSchool Media, the premier US educational publication.
