#EesyAwards 2018

By Monica Dancel

In December, we launched our very first customer award ceremony - the #EesyAwards! We have seen that with more universities and private institutions using our solutions to measure LMS usage, drive tool adoption or improve LMS support, more interesting and innovative use cases appear. We are extremely thankful for the efforts of our users so we decided to recognize them for their ongoing support, innovative ideas and for simply making great use of the solutions we offer.


So here they are: The EesyAward winners for 2018! We hope that their efforts will inspire you to take your LMS usage to the next level as well.

Presentation Masters Award

Many customers have presented with us or about us at conferences like BbWorld, Bb TLC, and Instructurecarn. But this award goes to the presentation master that really stood out in 2018...

Eric A. Silva from The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Eric is a Learning Technologies influencer on the rise and did a rock star presentation with us at BbWorld 2018 in Orlando. Eric demonstrated how he used #EesySupport to integrate our 24/7 All-in-One Support Center in Blackboard. Want to know how? You can find his full presentation here.

Best Newcomer Award

We grew this year. A lot. And while every new institution that joins the EesySoft family brings unique ideas to the table, this award is for the new customer in 2018 that really left their mark.

Bobbi Bain, Ruth Ruggles, & Rachel Bungo from Kent State University

Bobbi, Ruth & Rachel (aka the 3 R's :) from Kent State have only been using EesySoft for a short while, but in that short time they have given us great feedback and have really made full use of our solutions.


Radical Recommend-er Award

When our customers recommend us to other institutions, it makes us happy! So this award is for those customers that have really spread the word about EesySoft.

Sid Beitler from Palm Beach State College

Palm Beach State has been a long standing EesySoft customer and Sid has been supportive since the very start. With the help of EesySoft, Sid is able to support 40,000 students with just 1 support specialist. Read the full user story here.


Most Innovative Use of EesySoft 

Alisa Kadenic-Newman from Community College System of New Hampshire

Even though CCSNH has been using EesySoft for quite some time now, when the decision was made to move from Blackboard to Canvas, Alisa leveraged the data she got from EesySoft to make their migration, well, eesier! She told us her amazing story which inspired us to create a new solution, specifically for LMS migration (see EesyMigration). Want to see the full migration timeline? Check out the case study here.


EesyReporter Award

Tom Hey and Alex Pritchard at Leeds Beckett University

Tom and Alex took EesyReports to a new level at Leeds Beckett. They identified commonly problematic pages and reduced their number of support requests.

EesyMessager Award 

Tammy Robinson & Jarrod Hiles from the University of Newcastle

When it comes to EesyMessages, there is a direct correlation between a clean design with clearly written content and positive feedback from users. Tammy and Jarrod from the University of Newcastle have gone out of their way to customize their EesyMessages and add supportive multimedia into them.

Brian Irwin from Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam, with Brian at the lead, has made the most highly customized EesySupport center we have seen to date! Complete with a full range of personalized, institution specific help items and brand colors, the EesySupport center at SHU is amazing!
