As part of The EdTech Awards 2019 from EdTech Digest, Discovery Education Streaming Plus earned strong praise from judges, including this evaluation: “Discovery’s offering is epic. The quality of the main offering in the digital content library holds a visual experience and learning that is tough to match and certainly can’t be described with lecture or mere pictures in textbooks. The fact that the content is also within a framework and allow for uploaded teacher lesson descriptor videos and more, is nice, but the content is the star.” Streaming Plus earned top honors as the Cool Tool Award Winner, “Best Content Provider Solution”.
