Capsim Announced as 2020 CODiE Award Finalist
We’re thrilled to share that Capsim has been recognized for its commitment to creating innovative simulation-based learning experiences to develop essential career skills. CapsimInbox was named 2020 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in two categories: Best Content Authoring Development or Curation Solution and Best Emerging Instructional Technology Solution.
Capsim competed against worthy award finalists representing applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.
Our product was honored as one of 157 finalists across the 35 education technology series.
CapsimInbox, a day-in-the-life microsimulation platform, enables educators to create meaningful learning experiences. In as little as 30 minutes, participants are:
- Exposed to real-world decision-making in a familiar email environment
- Measured objectively on the effectiveness of their decision-making
- Provided actionable feedback for personal development
“We are delighted to have CapsimInbox selected as a finalist in two categories for the 2020 CODiE Awards,” said Capsim’s Vice President of Products and Services, Jordan Novak. “We believe CapsimInbox is the future of education. We’re providing instructors with a tool to create meaningful learning experiences that address the skill gaps continually highlighted by hiring organizations. Now learners have a fun and engaging way to gain practical experience making decisions in real-world situations while also receiving the actionable feedback critical to one’s professional development.”
Mike Ochyl, Vice President of Engineering, noted this iteration of the platform is “just the tip of the iceberg,” stating, “there is so much more we’re working on, and we look forward to sharing exciting news on our progress in the coming months.”
Acknowledged as the premier awards program for the software and information industries for 35 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries.
“We are thrilled to unveil the 2020 CODIE Award finalists, the best in education technology,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “These exciting innovations are setting the pace to improve outcomes in education for students, educators, and administrators.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists and account for 80% of the overall score. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
Education Technology category winners will be shared during an online winner announcement celebration May 19, 2020.
