eSchool Media Inc. announced the winners of its 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards, honoring the best products and services in education technology. Raptivity, the leading rapid interactivity building tool from Harbinger Knowledge Products, won 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards in the K-12 category. Practicing educators along with school and college administrators nominated their favorite educational technology product or service. No vendor nominations were allowed in this complete process. The winning products and services were divided into three categories: K-12, Higher-Education and Honorable Mention.
“Last fall, we asked our readers to give their top picks for school hardware, software, websites and services. Nearly 1,400 readers responded via one of our three websites: eSchoolNews.com, eCampusNews.com, and eClassroomNews.com. In nominating their favorite products, we asked readers to tell us how they’re using these products to improve teaching, learning, or school administration—and to what effect. We then chose the 50 best responses, which appear alphabetically by product name and grouped into two categories: K-12 and higher education.” – said Dennis Pierce, Editor, eSchool Media
“It’s indeed a proud moment for Raptivity to be ranked among the Top 50 Education Technology Products in the K-12 category. We are excited to receive this recognition of being a 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards winner” said Seema Chaudhary, President of Harbinger Knowledge Products Inc. “Raptivity team is always on fore-front to serve customers and meet their changing eLearning needs. eSN Readers’ Choice Awards confirms that our customers value the services provided by Raptivity team.
