The award is the highest recognition possible for online curriculum from UCEA, a membership association that promotes excellence in continuing higher education. The competition judges courses from all colleges and universities nationwide, representing all disciplines. Online courses are judged on lesson content, assignments, student assessment, course layout, design, and the use of multi-media elements.

“Music Production Analysis is a visually engaging, beautifully designed, and masterfully constructed course. The instructional videos are stunning,” said Kay J. Kohl, Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director of UCEA.

Music Production Analysis joins past Berkleemusic UCEA award winners Orchestration (2009 Winner), Concert Touring (2008 Winner), Guitar Chords 101 (2007 Winner), Berklee Keyboard Method (2006 Winner), and Getting Inside Harmony 1 (2005 Winner).

“We’ve taught over 25,000 students from around the world, from arena rock stars and music industry executives to hobbyists and developing musicians, and everyone in between,” said David Kusek, VP of Berkleemusic. “We’ve been changing musician’s lives for the past 8 years, and it’s fantastic that UCEA has continued to recognize the depth and content of our online music courses.”

Summer Term begins June 28th, 2010.
