Proposal Overview

Thank you for your interest in presenting at Training magazine's 2017 Online Learning Conference to be held September 25-27, in New Orleans, LA.

At this time we are only accepting submissions for best practices in eLearning for Training's 2nd Annual eLearning Design Challenge. The deadline for entries is Friday, March 17.

Don't miss this chance to show off your stuff!

The eLearning Design Challenge will be held as part of the Online Learning Conference in a series of timed, round-robin demonstrations showcasing innovative, engaging, and results-oriented best practices in eLearning. 

Representatives (one per company) from selected entries will receive a complimentary registration to the 2017 Online Learning Conference (value $1,495).

Training magazine will award Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards in each category 

Entries are being accepted in these five categories: 

  1. Mobile
  2. Gamification
  3. MicroLearning
  4. Social/Collaborative
  5. Simulations

Winners in each category will be recognized with Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards at the Conference.

The eLearning Design Challenge is open to learning technology vendors, custom developers, end-user organizations, students, and individuals. No fee is required.


Training magazine’s Online Learning Conference is designed for training and learning professionals who want to leverage the latest in eLearning tools, virtual classrooms, games for learning, simulations, mobile, social media, augmented reality, and other emerging technologies to improve human performance in the workplace.

Participants get the theories, the practical how-to’s, and hear from companies leading the charge in the use of technologies for learning. They learn strategies and best practices for designing, deploying, and managing effective learning technologies.


Attendees are organizational learning professionals across all industry sectors including academic institutions, government/military, healthcare, manufacturing, finance, transportation and business services. Attendee titles cover the full spectrum of roles—executives, managers, developers, designers, facilitators and project managers.

Attendees want strategies and techniques for building better, faster, cheaper online learning that adds to the bottom line. They deal with limited budgets, sometimes in IT-restricted environments. They are looking for ways to use existing learning technologies and how to integrate new technologies. They need help making the right technology decisions, navigating the 'stuff' in the middle, and connecting the dots in their ultimate goal of building effective online learning to deliver value to their organizations.
