NWFAUSt. Louis, Mo.—The National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) online learning platform, NWFA University (NWFAU), received its third Litmos Lenny Award for Best Not-for-Profit Training Program in 2020.

According to the group, Litmos, the education platform for NWFAU, offers an industry-leading Learning Management System (LMS) that unifies virtual, classroom, mobile and social learning in a secure, intuitive platform. The Litmos Lenny Awards honor innovative and inspiring Litmos use cases across any industry or company size.

“NWFAU is a valuable tool for providing educational opportunities for our members to help them achieve their personal and professional goals,” said Stephanie Owen, NWFA vice president of education. “With so many of our members seeking learning opportunities from the comfort of their own homes, we’ve seen a tremendous uptick of interest in our learning platform.”

NWFAU offers more than 200 courses and has more than 10,000 individual users. More than 85,000 courses have been completed since its 2016 launch, at a rate of about 45 courses per day. Those numbers have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic to more than 100 courses per day completed. This rise is in part due to a 40% increase in new registered viewers since March 2020.

NWFAU is comprised of individual learning courses lasting 15-20 minutes with an online testing component. Completing a series of courses leads to earning digital badges, which NWFA members can use on websites and social media platforms to verify a learned skill.
