By Katie van den Berk

We recently selected the winners of our 3rd annual EesyAwards to celebrate our users that have gone above and beyond with their EesySoft use, especially during a global pandemic! We are extremely thankful for our users and their ongoing support, innovative ideas, and for making great use of the solutions we offer. Here is a breakdown of the 2020 winners and the reasons they won!

Drumroll please...The EesyAward winners for 2020! We hope that their efforts will inspire you to take your LMS usage to the next level too.


Best Newcomer: George Brown College

EesyAwards Best Newcomer - Winner 2020

We have had so many customers join us this past year, making this an especially tough category! The winner we selected has been so invested since Day 1, utilizing their support center, messaging options, and data insights. They work on a multi-departmental team to improve both student LMS use and faculty training for online courses, which was critical during COVID-related moves to digital learning. For example, you can see this message below using H5P to link faculty to online learning resources in an eye-catching, engaging way. Congrats George Brown College.

When our customers recommend us to other institutions, it makes us happy! This award is for those customers that have spread the word about EesySoft. Dr. Karen Acree from San Juan College has been instrumental in sharing San Juan College's experience with EesySoft to prospective customers including Canvas users, fellow New Mexican universities, and other similarly situated community colleges.

Most Innovative Use of EesySoft

For the Most Innovative EesyAward, we had to choose two winners! 

As more universities and private institutions use our solutions to measure LMS usage, drive tool adoption, and improve LMS support, we have seen lots of interesting and creative use cases appear! This year, we chose two winners for their innovative approach to verify student compliance and provide students with necessary student information. For the most Innovative EesyAward we had to choose two winners, in no particular order, the winners are: 

Texas A & M International University for their Orientation video EesyMessage

Explanation video of their EesyMessage



Community College Systems of New Hampshire for their COVID testing message with College ID and QR code screening app 



Superstar Customer: Foothill College 

EesySoft Superstar - Winner 2020

Finally, for our Superstar Customer of the year, our award goes to Jolie and Lené from Foothill College! According to our interview with them this year (link above), EesySoft was instrumental in ensuring academic continuity at Foothill College. Foothill takes advantage of EesySoft’s in-line messaging, tool adoption reports, and support center anytime they can in order to support and guide users during the transition to fully online education this year. We look forward to seeing what else they will do next year!
