The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) recently announced that nonprofit, online Western Governors University (WGU) and uCertify are the winners of the 2018 CODiE Award for Best Learning Relationship Management Solution for courses offered in WGU's College of Information Technology.

This is the second time in three years that WGU and uCertify have received a CODiE award for offering solutions that improve effectiveness and the overall student experience.   

The CODiE award-winning platform "uCertify LEARN with WGU" is a cloud-based learning management platform that enables students to acquire skills in high demand with a combination of diagnostics tests, interactive content delivery, and hands-on exercises. The platform personalizes the student path by providing an interactive coaching report generated from diagnostic assessment's results, which directs learners to the specific areas of the course where they need to focus their time. 

"Our partnerships with third-party developers like uCertify allow us to deliver best-in-class learning experiences while keeping tuition affordable for students," said Adrian Genesir, Senior Curriculum Program Manager in WGU's College of IT. "The engaging environment we're able to create together has a great track record for helping students gain the competencies they need to succeed in the program and, ultimately, in their careers."

Presented annually since 1986, the SIIA CODiE Awards recognizes the best in technology's products, services, and solutions in business and education. Award submissions are peer-reviewed by a panel of tech-savvy educators from across the nation and SIIA members.
