GeoLearning Customer GoLearn Wins 2003 Grace Hopper Government Technology Award
GeoLearning, Inc., the largest Application Service Provider (ASP) of enterprise learning management systems and e-learning content, announced today that the federal government’s GoLearn e-training site at www.golearn.gov has won a 2003 Grace Hopper Government Technology Leadership Award. The federal e-training site, which is powered by GeoLearning’s GeoMaestro™ learning management system, was recognized for its “leadership in the innovative application of information technology that breaks down barriers between offices, agencies and departments.”
The 12th Annual Government Technology Leadership Awards program recognizes federal projects that make exceptional contributions to mission accomplishment, cost effectiveness and service to the public. The awards are known as the Gracies, in honor of Rear Adm. Grace Hopper, a gutsy technology trailblazer and 43-year Navy veteran deeply committed to promoting innovation. To win a Gracie, a federal agency must show how its idea challenged conventional thinking and how it used technology to solve it in a new way. Winners are chosen by the Academy for Government Technology Leadership, a group of experts on the federal government’s use of technology.
Launched in July 2002 by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) as part of the E-Training Initiative, GoLearn provides federal workers with access to training courses on a single Web site. Designed to unify, simplify and reduce redundant e-learning investments across government, GoLearn has cut costs by $15 million in its first year, according to OPM estimates.
“We are extremely pleased that GoLearn has been recognized for its innovations in learning,” said Frank Russell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. “We are proud to have played an integral part in their successful initiative and look forward to continuing our partnership.”
