eThink Education, a leader in innovative learning management system solutions and now a part of Open LMS, has won a coveted Brandon Hall Group “Excellence in Technology” award (bronze) in the Best Advance in Learning Management Technology category.

The Brandon Hall Awards are judged by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts who evaluate products based on their innovations, uniqueness, problem-solving capabilities, and measurable benefits to clients.

This award recognizes Open LMS and eThink’s leadership in the learning management field. Open LMS and eThink provide a fully-managed digital learning platform, best-of-breed content, and the services that organizations and institutions need to transform their learning programs and effectively meet their learning objectives.

Open LMS and eThink's comprehensive eLearning solution includes AWS cloud hosting, implementation, integration, consultation, and management services for the open-source Moodle™ and Totara learning management systems (LMS).

Open LMS and eThink’s team of experts provide unlimited, high-touch LMS support to help clients build learning programs that are tailored to meeting a wide variety of need sets.

“Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are at the forefront of technology innovation. Our program evaluates not just the solution itself, but the benefit to the human capital management function, the business, and the customer. That is the ultimate differentiator – whether the technology has a positive business impact. Technology Award winners pass that test with flying colors,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.

“An Excellence Award also validates the vision of the technology development team, the wisdom of the company’s investment in the solution, and the value the technology brings to the end-user,” said Mike Cooke, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon Hall Group.

“eThink is excited to be recognized for our work in the industry with this Excellence in Technology award,” said Brain Carlson, Co-Founder of eThink Education. “Open LMS and eThink work with our clients to identify their eLearning needs and configure their LMS to meet those specific needs, including identifying ways that we can extend the LMS by integrating with additional plugins or tools that are available in the market, as well as aiding in custom and off-the-shelf content selection. Through our unlimited support model, clients enjoy full access to our experts, who are always available to discuss eLearning trends, best practices, and pedagogy, or to simply be a sounding board to help clients visualize their path to eLearning success. eThink’s unlimited support model sets it apart from other platforms and we are proud to have our innovation recognized by the Brandon Hall panel.”
