Media 1 Wins Multiple Regional STC Awards: Grand Haven-based Media 1 said this week it had once again earned three regional awards in the annual competition for technical communication organized by the Society of Technical Communication. The recognition came from two STC chapters, Twin Cities Community (Minneapolis/St. Paul) and West Michigan Shores. Peer reviewed by professionals from various industries within the local online technical communication community, the STC awards reflect outstanding achievements in online communication, technical art, and technical publications. The West Michigan Shores Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (WMS-STC) gave an Award of Excellence for the computer-based training course, State of Maine Blocking Underage Tobacco Sales “NO BUTS,” for creatively training all retail employees of licensed retail tobacco stores in the State of Maine on preventing the sale of tobacco to minors. Developed by Media 1 for the State of Maine Department of the Attorney General, this course covered applicable laws, policies and procedures for keeping tobacco out of the hands of minors and leveraged existing NO BUTS educational materials. The WMS-STC also recognized the computer-based training course, Rockwell Collins Critical Thinking in Engineering, with an Award of Merit. Media 1 partnered with Rockwell Collins, a leader in communications and aviation electronics solutions for aerospace and defense companies, to develop this interactive online course tailored specifically to the learning needs of the Rockwell Collins engineering community. This course directly supported their educational needs for valuing critical thinking as part of planning programs and engineering projects. The Twin Cities Community Chapter gave an Award of Merit to the Purina Feed/Land O’Lakes course, Calibrate Technologies Overview, developed by Media 1. Designed for individuals working directly with dairy farms and farm co-ops — such as farm sales reps, nutritionists, agronomists, and forage advisors — this course introduces the fundamentals of the Calibrate Technologies program and the science behind it. Between 1998 and 2010, Media 1 has received more than 70 STC awards, including two International Best of Show Awards. Media 1 is an award-winning custom learning developer specializing in SharePoint-based “social learning portals” for new hires, sales, and leadership. More at www.media1.us.
