OpenLearning has been named one of (equal 2nd in fact!) Australia's 100 most innovative products or services, in one of the largest and most audacious innovation awards of its kind in Australia – the Anthill Magazine 'SMART 100' Index.
When we heard that we had made the Anthill SMART 100 list, we were thrilled! Then we looked at the ranking and we were even happier :)
About the SMART 100
The SMART 100 Index was created by leading business media channel Anthill Magazine in 2008 to identify and rank Australia's 100 most innovative products, proving to be one of the largest surveys of its kind in Australia.
"In true Anthillian style, the SMART 100 is an ever-evolving, ever-improving experiment," said Anthill founder and Editor-In-Chief James Tuckerman.
"It identifies and ranks new Australian innovations by applying a combination of crowdsourcing, collaboration and common-sense. We employ the judgement of 'mavens' and readers.
"Unlike your average awards program, we don't lock a panel of expert adjudicators in a small room. Neither do we demand a thorough analysis of each applicant's P&L statement. We don’t even request an historical snapshot of 'runs on the board' or commercial achievements.
"This is because innovation is future focussed. It is about identifying and solving problems in ways that will change the way we live, do business and think."
