Each CODiE Award nomination receives a detailed review by industry experts including executives, analysts, media, investors, educators and administrators. Product entrants conduct live demos to the judges, and the judges assess them against category specific criteria. Top scorers are then announced as finalists. Finalists receive a second-round "peer" review by SIIA members and select first round judges between April 25 and May 6 and winners will be announced during the 2022 SIIA Annual Conference on Thursday, June 9th.

At Cengage Group, we are on a mission to provide quality, digital learning experiences that help students be job ready, not just degree ready.
