Second straight year Ogment from EvoText is finalist for Software and Information Industry Association’s highest honor
Boston — Each year, experts from the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) evaluate and judge the education industry’s current technologies and trends. EvoText announced today that Ogment® has been named a three-time finalist for the 2017 SIIA CODiE Awards in the three categories: Best Classroom Management Solution, Best Cross-Curricular Solution, and Best K-12 Course or Learning Management Solution.
Ogment is a curriculum creation and management system (CCMS) that captures and facilitates the process of curriculum development and delivery to make the process easier and more efficient. In only its second year of entry, Ogment has been named as a finalist five times, winning their first CODiE as Best Cross-Curricular Solution in 2016.
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 93 categories organized by industry focus in education technology and business technology. Ogment holds three of the 160 finalist spots in the 34 education technology categories.
This year’s finalists were selected after a detailed review by expert judges. The winners will be announced in San Francisco during the Education Impact Symposium on July 26, 2017.
