Language Learning Portal LinguaTV receives European Educational Award
The internationally coveted Comenius EduMedia Award is presented annually by an independent jury of media experts. LinguaTV was awarded as one of the most academically valuable, content-rich and well-designed educational multimedia products.
This award is presented annually by an independent international jury of media experts from ten European countries to outstanding European educational multimedia brands. Representatives from all major software and education businesses gathered together for the fifteenth time in Berlin and this year selected LinguaTV as one of the most academically valuable, content-rich and well-designed educational multimedia products.
The Comenius Award is the oldest German and European educational multimedia prize for outstanding academic multimedia products. All eligible products have to meet high academic requirements and are subject to extensive scrutiny. It is for this reason that the team at LinguaTV is extremely excited about this achievement. On behalf of LinguaTV, managing directors Sandra Gasber and Philip Gienandt accepted the award from the chairman of GPI, Prof. Dr. Gerhard E. Ortner, and Managing Director of the GPI, Dr Bernd Mikuszeit. Competing alongside LinguaTV were 140 applicants, including Auralog, Cornelsen, Digital Publishing, Englishtown, Franklin, and Langenscheidt, with a total of 170 entries for the coveted European multimedia award.
The video training from LinguaTV, which is already being used actively in current teaching and learning programs at various institutions, has, with this title, already acquired its fourth award in the company’s short three-year history. Since the end of April the content and features of the online platform have been enhanced. On offer are a total of sixteen courses in five foreign languages: English including Business English, French, Spanish and Italian as well as German are all now available for businesses, academic organisations and individual clients. The heart of the language course lies in the professionally produced video tutorials.
