New York, NY, November 26, 2012—Learn360 (www.Learn360.com), an interactive media-on-demand service for the K-12 education market, was selected as a winner in Tech & Learning magazine's 30th Annual Awards of Excellence, in the "Best Upgraded Product Winners" category. This marks the second year in a row that Learn360 has been recognized by this prestigious publication, which this year named 83 outstanding education technology products as winners.

"As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution for your district needs is more important than ever," says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group.
