Continual Learning wins 2011 W3 awards

UNCG’s Division of Continual Learning (DCL) recently won three W3 Awards (“Webbies”), presented by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, honoring creative excellence on the web.

PSC 105: Issues and Ideologies received a Gold Award for Educational Web Site. It is an innovative, interactive online course (originally launched in 2009), developed in close conjunction with Dr. Carisa Showden, Leigh Sink, Liz McNamara and Dr. Adam Van Liere from the Department of Political Science. The course presents content through a virtual “newsstand” of original tailored online magazines, newspaper articles, radio and TV programs and gritty interactive case studies.

DCL also garnered Silver Awards for the new UNCG Online web site launched in Summer 2011, and the Spring/Summer 2011 Online Advertising Campaign for the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies in their respective categories.

This year the W3 competition received more than 3,000 entries.
