Projects are submitted to the eLearning Awards in general, not to a specific category. All entries are considered for the outstanding teachers Award and, for other Awards, evaluators identify for which categories the projects are suitable.

Categories cover different areas in teaching such as school development. eSafety issues, institutional aspects as well as pedagogical issues. Particular emphasis will be given to schools active in increasing the creative approach in teaching and learning as well as increasing the motivation of learners in the different subject areas.

The category on ‘international cooperation’ introduced in 2009 features entries from all over the world to highlight school projects from across the globe. This year we introduce a new category, the Aspect Award, which aims to award visibility and usability (particularly regarding licencing) of learning resources on local, regional or national learning resource repositories..

Categories reward the best projects with a gold, silver and bronze prize. The prizes will be received by the school or teacher training institution.

A special category will award the best teachers. They will receive a platinum prize in a special category ‘creativity and innovation’ for outstanding teachers.

The indicative categories proposed for the 2010 Awards are as follows, the final number of categories is subject to negotiation with partners:
