Arkadin Wins Platinum and Gold MarCom Awards for Excellence in Online Training

Jack the Trainer’ Video Tutorials Recognized for Web Animation and Educational Achievement

Arkadin, an NTT Communications company and one of the largest and fastest growing providers of Unified Communications and Collaboration services announced that it is a double winner in the MarCom awards for excellence. A platinum award was bestowed for Design in Web Animation and a gold award for Web Video in Education. Administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, the international awards competition attracted over 6,500 entries, including Fortune 500 companies.

MarCom Awards recognize outstanding achievement by marketing professionals worldwide,” says Ed Dalheim, director of MarCom Awards.  “Arkadin’s double win is a tremendous achievement, representing work that exceeds a high standard of excellence for serving as an industry benchmark.”

eLearning videos are a key element of our strategy for meeting the training needs of all customers, regardless of their level of knowledge,” says Sophie Huss, global director of talent sourcing and training for Arkadin.   

Jack the Trainer, the face of the online training, resulted from Arkadin’s vision for a lighthearted character that could provide step-by-step instruction appropriate for novice and experienced collaboration users.  “Jack’s personable and engaging tone is in stark contrast to so many dull, complicated trainings for technology services,” continued Ms. Huss.  “His sense of fun and enjoyment underscores our tagline and approach to having enjoyable collaboration experience:  Arkadin: Enjoy Sharing.” 

Originally launched for Arkadin’s Anytime and Anywhere conferencing services, the overwhelmingly positive customer response resulted in video tutorials for Arkadin’s complete web conferencing line. The Jack the Trainer series now includes approx. 40 instructional videos.
