IT Sligo was honored with this award on the 21st June 2012 in Dublin Castle. FPT Skillnet when first initiatiting the degree in Polymer Processing in 2008-2009, recognised IT Sligo’s excellent track record in online delivery and knew they were the third level institution to engage with. Athlone Institue of Technology also joined forces with IT Sligo to deliver the polymer specific modules. The online delivery allows students to continue working and attend lectures (online) in their own time. The advances in technology regarding online delivery are groundbreaking with IT Sligo winning a Digital Media Award in 2011- Best in e-learning for their KITE project. The students on the polymer processing degree programme in particular, benefitted greatly from these technological advances. The first cohort graduated in November 2011.
