The deadline to nominate a colleague or distance learning program to receive special recognition for excellence from ITC is Monday, September 30, 2019.

ITC award winners will receive $25 discount to attend the 2020 Annual Conference - eLearning in Charleston SC, February 9-12, 2020, courtesy of ITC. During our Annual Conference, a special recognition will honor the award winners, who will also be featured in the meeting app and on the ITC website.

See Past Recipients of ITC's Awards for Excellence in eLearning

NOTE: Forms are completed online in Survey Monkey which does not permit you to save your work. We encourage you to download the pdf of the nomination forms, answer the questions in a word document and cut and paste your answers into the online Survey Monkey form. 

NOMINATION FORM - ITC will recognize achievement in the following categories:

  • Outstanding eCourse - Institutions are invited to nominate one eCourse to receive this award. An eCourse is defined as one where fifty percent or more of the instruction and activities take place at a distance. Only courses developed in-house at a post-secondary institution will be considered. The course must be designed with a high level of interactivity, multimedia, communication, and variety of instructional and course management strategies. These strategies must be replicable and assist an instructor to facilitate more effectively; continuously evaluate student performance and course quality; and provide an outstanding educational experience for the students. Information about the course will be gathered from the application and access to the course for verification and review will be used for the evaluation.  Sample nomination form: Outstanding eCourse
  • Innovative eLearning Technology - Institutions of higher education may nominate an organizational unit or person that has demonstrated the outstanding use of a new technology tool or delivery system to accomplish a new method of student delivery or learning. The students may be located on or off campus, and may be taking a face-to-face, blended learning, or fully distance course. The application must include how the efforts of the organizational unit or individual are new, innovative, unique and replicable. Sample nomination form: Innovative eLearning Technology
  • Outstanding eLearning Support for Faculty or Students - Institutions of higher education may nominate an organizational unit that has built a solid reputation for outstanding support and service for their faculty or students. Nominations should only include one organizational unit focused on either student or faculty support. The application must include how this unit's efforts are replicable and innovative. Sample nomination form:  Outstanding eLearning Support for Faculty or Students
  • Outstanding eLearning Faculty—Faculty are nominated by their institution's president/CEO or senior administration representative, with a limit of one nominee per institution. ITC will only choose one or two nominees to receive an ITC Award for Excellence in eLearning for Outstanding Faculty, but we will recognize every faculty member who is nominated to receive an award as a distinguished educator, chosen by his or her institution as an exemplary member of his or her community. ITC will present each distinguished educator with a framed certificate at the Annual Conference and list them in the meeting app and on the ITC website. Unfortunately, ITC is not able to provide complimentary conference registrations for every distinguished educator. We hope the nominating institutions can provide the financial support so the distinguished educators can participate in the Annual Conference.  Sample nomination form: Outstanding eLearning Faculty

We look forward to the opportunity to highlight your institution's award-winning innovations, recognize your representatives, and celebrate your institution's wonderful accomplishments in providing leadership and innovation in eLearning!
