New York City, Nov. 12, 2013 — Versal today announced that the company has been named an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in two categories: Tech for a Better World and Software & Mobile Apps.
Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.
Versal is a new way for anyone to create amazingly interactive online courses - no coding required. It's open to all instructors and features open publishing tools, including the ability to embed courses anywhere on the Internet.
“We are proud that CES recognized the amazing technology team behind Versal with the Software & Mobile Apps award,” said Versal CEO Gregor Freund. “But with the second award, Tech for a Better World, they also clearly understood and underscored our core mission: opening up the relatively closed world of online education to a much more diverse group of authors, publishers, teachers and learners, while at the same time drastically improving the quality of online courses and reducing the cost to produce them. We’re honored.”
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) ® , the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
The Versal course creator will be displayed in The Venetian at the 2014 International CES, which runs January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Media Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 5 in South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay.
The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:
Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.
