The eLearning Consortium of Colorado Awards committee is pleased to announce the winner of the first eLCC Learning Technologies Team Award or eLCCellence

University of Northern Colorado

This is a new team focused award for the eLearning Consortium of Colorado. The purpose of this award it to recognize the many initiatives, projects, and programs that support best practices, creative solutions, innovation and transformational change in eLearning and the groups that make them possible. The award reflects the complex environment of eLearning and the collaborative nature of our member organizations.

The eLearning Technologies Award recognizes staff, faculty and administrator teams engaged in communicating and sharing out exceptional experiences or projects. The team project may consist of a single instance or a broader implementation of learning technologies.

The term ‘learning technologies’ can also be interpreted widely to include all forms of online content, and may incorporate such things as synchronous learning, use of social media, or mobile technologies. The project may identify with teaching, professional development, academic technology or some combination thereof.

The eLCC Awards Committee is very pleased to announced the winners for the 2017 eLCC Learning Technologies Team Award.

The Process

At the July 22nd meeting, members started to discuss additional awards or recognition.

At the eLCC retreat on September 30, we had the awards committee present some options on additional recognition and engagement. Here is the awards discussion template

We also gave participants the opportunity to give us comment cards on awards and forms of recognition. Here are the input form the awards comment cards

And lastly at the Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium on October 7, we had a table in the 2nd floor atrium of Metro State University’s Student Success Building (SSB) on the Auraria Campus in Denver.

We have introduced the eLearning Technologies Team Award for 2017. Feel free to give us ideas on others. If you have any ideas, go ahead and email

Like the award for the professional development site that most resembles a
