steeluniversity.org (formerly ILSAP) has been selected as a winner of the European Academic Software Award (EASA) 2004.
EASA is a biennial competition for academic software and the use of education technology, arranged by the European Knowledge Media Association (EKMA). It is intended to stimulate the understanding, development and use of knowledge media within higher education across Europe.
ILSAP impressed the jurors with its innovative and excellent graphical simulations, its use of open-ended problems and its integrated educational approach.
ILSAP was the name used during the pilot phase of steeluniversity.org
IISI is absolutely delighted and honoured that steeluniversity.org was selected for the award, especially when considering the very high quality of the other 29 software projects. Apart from the award itself, it was a great opportunity to mix with the best, and to observe, learn and gain inspiration from what others in the field are doing.
The EASA 2004 award is a significant recognition of the support that the global steel industry and its partners have committed to this ground-breaking project. It would not have been possible without the inspiration, expertise, time and efforts of many people, each of whom share a part of this success. We would therefore like to thank everyone who has been involved in the planning, development, evaluation and dissemination of steeluniversity.org.
