Posted on: 26 November, 2015

Reading, United Kingdom, 26 November 2015- University College of Estate Management (UCEM) – leading provider of supported online learning for the Built Environment – has been awarded bronze for ‘best online distance-learning programme’ in recognition of its long-standing commitment to the online learning sector. The award was presented during the E-Learning Awards gala evening held in London on 25 November.

The E-Learning Awards showcase some of the most recognisable, memorable, and life-changing e-learning worldwide. With 400 entries across 19 categories, the entries were reduced to a shortlist of a strong 145. The ‘best online distance-learning programme’ award seeks to recognise distance-learning programmes, which have made excellent use of online tools to facilitate learning. The award is particularly focused on programmes that employ a range of methods and media over many weeks or months of part-time study, typically leading to a formal qualification.

E-Learning Awards and Learning Technologies organiser Mark Penton from CloserStill, commented: “It was the toughest competition to date and congratulations are in order to all of the winners and everyone that was shortlisted. The awards programme has been a true recognition of the breadth of e-learning worldwide and we’d like to thank everyone who was involved, particularly our sponsors, partners and judges.”

Ashley Wheaton, Principal at UCEM, said: “I was delighted for UCEM to have been nominated for the prestigious E-Learning Awards in the categories of ‘e-Learning team of the year’ and ‘best online distance learning programme’. To have then won bronze for ‘best online distance learning-programme’ in our first ever year of entering is just tremendous. I’m extremely proud of the team and everyone who has contributed to this success. Winning this award is proof of UCEM’s commitment as a leading provider of online learning in the Built Environment industry. We look forward to continuing to provide accessible, flexible and cost-effective education for a better Built Environment.”
