The awards recognize the best uses of technology to improve learning and job performance within companies or through individual professional development. The 2022 award winners were announced at the International Conference on Interactive Collaborative Learning awards ceremony in Vienna, Austria, Sept. 30, 2022. The IELA is dedicated to advancing the knowledge and practice of e-learning in schools and universities, and in the workplace.

Medi-Corps augments curricula and enhances health and life sciences education at the Governor’s Health Sciences Academy in the Alexandria City Public Schools and at academies in the Arlington Public Schools, Fairfax County Public Schools, and Loudoun County Public Schools. The centerpiece of Medi-Corps is a mobile Immersive Learning Center (ILC) – a 45-foot-long classroom and lab on wheels that will provide students with leading-edge technology, simulation, and immersive virtual and augmented learning experiences.
