Building Online Communities: National Educators Training and Leadership Center
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) asked Collaborative to help develop their National Educators Training and Leadership Center (NET LC). The online NET LC—which follows the Baldrige principles—featured tools and resources to help education leaders work together to address today’s issues, consider tomorrow’s challenges and think broadly about systems change.
Collaborative partnered with CCSSO to develop this fully comprehensive online network development tool that enabled professionals to connect, pose dilemmas, and learn in public and private forums. Specifically, we provided monthly content for the site, identified main themes and aided in the overall maintenance of the site. Our team also developed interactive tools for the NET LC Web site to further enhance the learning experience of site visitors. These tools simulated live assessments in system redesign and strategic planning.
NET LC has been recognized as an excellent online resource for education professionals looking to create high-performing 21st century education systems. In 2006, the site won a prestigious Best in Class Interactive Media Award and was commended for its content, feature functionality and quality design.
The Web site was awarded the 2006 Best in Class Interactive Media Award which honors individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievement in Web site design and development. NET LC was commended for its content, feature functionality and quality design.
The Web site was also recognized as an Official Honoree of The 2005 Webby Awards. The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence in Web design, creativity, usability and functionality.
