Marc Durando, Executive director of European Schoolnet said: "The eLearning Awards is a unique opportunity for schools and teacher training institutions in Europe and beyond to demonstrate how innovative they are and share with others their projects and ideas. This year we introduced the publication of the eLearning Awards entries on the Learning Resource Exchange, a library of learning resources from 16 Ministries of Education and other content partners. This will help raise further the visibility of teachers participating in the eLearning Awards."
