This year’s ATD Houston 2016 Technology Conference, will be on April 27. It’s always a great conference, but this year it will be extra special. We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be sponsoring a contest to design an eLearning module for the Houston Food Bank.

The Houston Food Bank needs help developing annual eLearning compliance training for its 203+ employees. Contest participants will create an eLearning module using our very own rapid eLearning authoring tool Obsidian Black and a custom template we specially designed for Houston Food Bank. Each participant will be assigned a topic and will be provided content and access to Obsidian Black during the contest, which runs from March 16 to close-of-business April 20. Judging will take place from April 21-25.

All participants will be acknowledged, and the showcase winner will be announced, at the conference on April 27. And the winning prizes are amazing – a one-year license for Obsidian Black ($840 value) and an elearning Brothers Developer Package ($948 value)! (There will also be extra goodies for all contest participants.)

This is a great opportunity to help an important non-profit organization, add a course to your portfolio, and learn a new authoring tool, so don’t hesitate to enter the contest. But you’d better act fast! Only 20 participants will be selected, and you must enter by March 15. Click here or contact Debbie Richards to enter.
