World Religions: BESSIE Winner!

Infobase is very pleased to announce that the newly relaunched World Religions has won The ComputED Gazette’s 23rd Annual Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIES) in the “High School Database Website” category. World Religions also won a BESSIE in 2012.

In a review of the winning database, The ComputED Gazette praised World Religions for its “detailed, in-depth articles…enormous amount of excellent information…[and] features never dreamt of in the 20th century library, including topic centers, religious holidays and observances, and religion in the news,” noting that “educators can turn to World Religions…for cogent and comprehensive answers.”

The ComputED Gazette describes the BESSIES as awards that “target innovative and content-rich programs (including apps for iOS and Android) and websites that provide parents and teachers with the technology to foster educational excellence. Some selection criteria are academic content, technical merit, subject approach and management system.” Award winners are chosen annually and selected from titles submitted by publishers worldwide.

The ComputED Gazette has previously awarded BESSIES to other Infobase products, including Science OnlineLearn360Bloom’s Literature, Issues & Controversies, Today’s ScienceWorld News DigestThe World Almanac® Online, and The World Almanac® for Kids Online.
