Celebrating 500.000 email invitations and an important notice

Eliademy today reached a new milestone. Over 500.000 email invitations were sent in the last 30 days. This is a significant milestone that keeps us running.

Because of the unprecedented amount of invitations and new users in the platform we have managed to shock the system. Therefore at the moment is hard to enrol to a new course from the public catalogue.

We advise all FREE users to wait for 3 days before sending new invitations.
For our Premium users, there is the following workaround.

Workaround steps:

  1. Ask the user to create an account with Eliademy
  2. Navigate to the ADMIN page and click “User Admin”
  3. Add the user into the system by uploading an excel of emails or emails separated by a comma.
  4. Go to “Manage enrollments” and then assign your users to the course
  5. Next time that the user will login will be able to see your course

Rest assured that the team is working hard to open up the catalogue to the FREE users in a short period of time. Until then you can ask from support@eliademy.com anything that could make your life easier. We are here to simplify and eager to serve you.

4 Tips on how to improve your employees’ e-learning experience

E-learning is becoming a popular solution for internal training in corporations. It saves time, money and encourages learning together. As a manager you might be asking: How do I create an e-learning strategy? What should I take into account?

We have identified four key elements to improve the experience of e-learning for both your organization and your employees.


1. Create visual and interactive course materials

No one likes learning through a dry text material. Insert pictures and videos in your course content and you can make corporate learning become an enjoyable experience. You can also integrate your content from any other educational applications you are using in order to create a complete learning experience.

2. Monitor and evaluate your employees

It’s important to evaluate your employees’ performance. Create tasks and submissions to be completed and monitor the progress. This way you can also create processes to reward your employees for high-quality performance. Creating incentives to activate learning is a great way to benefit both your organization and your employees.

3. Engage your employees

The importance of sharing knowledge is crucial if you want to create a learning organization. As a Human Resources Manager, create active discussions and seek for feedback. Ask the participants what they have learned and what areas need more focus. This way you can see how your employees are using the e-learning tool and what they are talking about.

4. Link the progress of your employees to LinkedIn

To increase the professional competency of your employees, consider adding LinkedIn to the learning process. You can set up different skills to be learned from a particular course and then share the information on LinkedIn. You can also hand out certificates to your employees to provide official material about their achievements.

Eliademy is a Finalist for the 2014 Red Herring Top 100 Europe Award

Europe_Finalist logo

Today, we announce that we have been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the European business region.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criterion: they include disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

“For us, our addition to these criteria will be the quality of everyone in our entire learning community that has contributed to our achievement in the last year”, commented Sotiris Makrygiannis, CEO of CBTec (Eliademy.com).

This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.

“This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “The global economic situation has abated and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. Eliademy shows great promise and therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2014 crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.”

Finalists for the 2014 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health. During the months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech, mobile and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the award.

The Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red Herring Europe Forum in Amsterdam, April 7-9, 2014. The Top 100 winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of April 9 at the event.
