WIN Learning Recognized in Three Categories in the 2024 EdTech Cool Tool Awards

Kingston, Tennessee – April 23, 2024 – WIN Learning, a national leading developer of career readiness solutions, announced today that it has been named a finalist in three categories in the 2024 EdTech Cool Tool Awards. WIN’s Soft Skills Courseware is a finalist in the Digital Courseware Solution and the Best Skills Solution categories, and WIN’s digital badges and credentials are recognized in the Badging/Credentialing Solution category.

WIN’s Soft Skills Courseware is a blended learning solution designed to help students and job seekers improve their interpersonal and behavioral skills, and to provide employers with workplace-ready job candidates. The courseware is comprised of four modules: Communicating Effectively, Conveying Professionalism, Promoting Teamwork and Collaboration, and Thinking Critically and Solving Problems. Each module includes online instructional content, a posttest to measure learning gains, and supplemental offline activities for additional practice and application of courseware material. Learners receive a Certificate of Completion when they pass the posttests for all four modules. 

To complement its existing courseware and assessment solutions, WIN introduced digital badges and credentials in 2022 to enable learners to share their achievements online. WIN learners can earn digital badges when they complete courseware modules and can receive digital versions of their courseware Certificates of Completion and National Work Readiness Credentials. These digital achievements can be shared on LinkedIn and other social media platforms, sent via email, and added to an online resume or portfolio.

WIN has previously been named a finalist in the EdTech Awards in 2018, 2019, and 2022, earning recognition for Digital Skills Courseware and for the WIN Career Readiness System. “We are excited to once again be finalists in the EdTech Awards,” said Teresa Chasteen-Dunn, CEO of WIN Learning. “WIN has been a leader in education technology for the past 28 years, providing the very best online learning solutions to equip our learners with the skills they need for success. It is an honor to be recognized for our commitment to career readiness for all.”
