Outstanding and Best Proceedings Paper Awards

All presented proceedings papers were considered by ALT for an Outstanding Proceedings Paper Award. To receive this award, the judges had to agree with the statement "This paper presents work that strongly advances the field of learning technology". [If there is no agreement on the words "strongly advances" then the judges may make a Best Proceedings Paper Award.]

The best papers at ALT-C 2010 were forwarded to the Editors of the Association for Learning Technology Journal (ALT-J), one of whom was a member of the Programme Committee, to be considered for possible publication there. This didn't preclude authors of other accepted papers from submitting revised papers to ALT-J. Further information about ALT-J.

Best Poster Award

All accepted posters were eligible for the Best Poster Award, voted for by the conference delegates.
