My Experience with Creating a Scenario-based Course: Part 5

I demonstrated this project at the eLearning DemoFest 2012 event, where a variety of solutions for day-to-day eLearning challenges including tools, technologies, and processes are showcased. And the good news is that this course won the Best Soft Skills Course award. :) :)
