Introducing the Skillies: Best-of-best awards in online education

NEW YORK, March 9, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  To the pantheon of awards including Oscars, Emmys and Grammys, add one more --Skillies. But make a special place for the Skillies -- a unique program by SkilledUp.com to honor and highlight the best of the best in the burgeoning field of online education.

SkilledUp Presents the 2015 Skillies

"There is such an amazing variety of online courses that offer deep knowledge and actual skill acquisition," Nick Gidwani, president of SkilledUp, said in announcing winners in 11 categories for the inaugural Skillies Online Course Awards. "We wanted to highlight some of the learning companies out there that are really innovating and creating best-in-breed courses, and do it by leveraging our activity and engaged community of learners."

That community of thousands of learners decided the inaugural Skillies honorees by voting from nominees in the 11 categories, and sometimes by offering their own candidates with write-in ballots.

Each of the platforms cited -- indeed, all of the companies nominated -- offer high-quality online educational opportunities in their niches, and they offer learners something more: career mobility and professional connections.

With all votes counted, SkilledUp is proud to name the recipients, in their respective categories, of the Skillies Online Course Awards:
