New York, NY (USA), January 2017 - PricewaterhouseCoopers and BranchTrack, an authoring tool for scenario-based learning, have won a coveted Brandon Hall Group silver award for excellence in the "Best Advance in Gaming or Simulation Technology".
A BranchTrack representative exclaimed, "We are really happy! The award is another confirmation of the fact the paradigm of learning is shifting from stuffing learners with information to offering them engaging, realistic and relevant experiences. Having a choice and being able to see the consequences of your choices provides for much deeper learning. Fortunately, tools like BranchTrack allow instructional designers to create such gamified experiences with unprecedented speed and simplicity."
Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program added, "We congratulate our Technology Award winners and also thank them for leading the way in designing and utilizing technologies that empower organizations to enhance – and in some cases transform – their organizations. Our research shows that human-capital-management technology is a primary driver of innovation, and our award-winning organizations serve as models of success."
Together with a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:
