Richmond, Virginia, U.S. – August 17, 2010 – SoftChalk, a leading developer of content authoring software, today announced that its flagship product, SoftChalk 6, has been selected as the “Best in Category” for the Content Authoring Category of the 2010 IMS Learning Satisfaction and Trends Survey (LearnSAT).

“The recognition as ‘Best in Category for Content Authoring’ by the LearnSAT Survey is particularly meaningful because of the process used to conduct the survey. Only those affiliated with an educational institution were allowed to participate,” said Susan Evans, co-founder and CEO of SoftChalk LLC. “We view these results as a wonderful affirmation of our product by the educational technology user community and we are truly honored.”

The LearnSAT survey, conducted by the IMS Global Learning Consortium and Campus Technology magazine, is an open, web-based survey in which significant effort is made to qualify the respondents based on institutional or school district affiliation. Only qualified respondents participated in the 2009/2010 survey and the “Best in Category” winners were announced at the IMS Learning Impact Conference in Long Beach, California on May 18, 2010.

The IMS Global Learning Consortium LearnSAT report is the learning community’s number one source for satisfaction and trends in the use of technology to support learning, with underlying research conducted over a two year time span. The primary goal of the report is to help those responsible for implementing and supporting technology solutions for teaching and learning.

IMS and Campus Technology will release the detailed LearnSAT report in the Campus Technology online magazine, providing the learning technology community with the specifics related to winners and runner-up product providers, as well as learning platform purchase and migration trends to watch in 2010/2011.
