Texas Tech’s division of online learning won awards for print advertisements and publications, online advertisements, an interactive campaign and more.


Texas Tech University's Worldwide eLearning won six national awards during the 24th annual UPCEA Marketing and Enrollment Management Seminar earlier this month. Worldwide eLearning won awards for print advertisements and publications, online advertisements, outdoor/exhibit signage and an interactive media campaign.

Kelly Podzemny, Worldwide eLearning's digital media coordinator, said he was surprised when he found out Worldwide eLearning had won several awards for its marketing efforts.

“It was an honor to be recognized among so many other institutions doing superior marketing in the online and continuing education space,” Podzemny said. “I attended the same conference last year without entering anything in the competition and saw the high-quality advertising work that gets entered.
