To qualify, the companies had to have annual revenue of less than $1 million, a fully, reviewable, finished product that was developed in the past three years as well as a functional website. The submissions were judged by a panel of ed tech executives from leading companies as well as industry consultants with more than 20 years of ed tech experience.
“After a two year hiatus, we are once again recognizing some of the best and brightest in the industry,” said Jennifer Baranowski, Managing Director of the CODiE Awards. “The judges were very impressed with the quality of the submissions and we are excited to have the next wave of pioneers take part in the Showcase. Ed tech has become a vital necessity in today’s classrooms – helping students whether in the classroom or virtual.”
