LearntobeHealthy.org e-Learning Kits Earn Awards

December 30, 2005 - Even before the launch of LearntobeHealthy.org, the on-line educational activities and materials developed by the Susan P. Byrnes Health Education Center were recognized with awards for their quality and innovation.

Most recently, the organization’s e-Learning kits received a bronze Horizon Interactive Awards in the Education/Training Website category. These kits, now featured on LearntobeHealthy.org, teach elementary school students about health related topics, including dental hygiene, the use of senses, the dangers of tobacco and inhalants, and the physical, social and emotional changes associated with puberty. 

The Horizon Interactive Awards honor exceptional programs that achieve their intended purpose with the target audience. They showcase the creative and technical excellence among multimedia developers worldwide. The 2005 award-winning entries showcased the best developed web sites, CD-ROMS, DVDs, audio, video, kiosks, video games and other interactive media from companies including BellSouth Corp., IBM, Agency.com, OgilvyOne WorldWide and Cisco Systems.

Also in 2005, the Susan P. Byrnes Health Education Center’s e-Learning initiative was recognized with a Non-Profit Innovation Award for its innovative use of technology. The award, presented by Journal Publications and regional foundations, provided further support for taking the e-Learning initiative to the next level.
