General Information concerning registration


.
How are the categories classified?

  • The four categories in Overview Categories above are based on the existing school systems in Europe.
  • Since there are distinct differences between the systems, some compromises had to be made.
  • If you are unsure about what category to enter your materials in, please contact the chairman for advice.

.
What materials can be entered?

Learning materials are defined as any kind of resource such as:
  • A book or a set of books (textbook, workbook, teacher's resource book, etc are billed as one book)
  • A package including different sorts of components in print and in electronic form (books, CDs, DVDs, online resources)
  • A purely digital learning resource to be used in school or as self-study material (with or without LMS)

.
General advice for entering materials.

  • When material is entered, the jury does not look at a text- or workbook as a single item but at the material for the whole program/course.
  • It is advisable to list all the components of the material you want to enter, be it textbook or online resource or tablet app or teacher's book or game.
  • Please note that the appraisal process starts in April and ends in July.
  • If your materials are in beta version and cannot be judged because of technical problems, it might be advisable to enter them a year later.
  • For this year's BELMA competition, only titles with a publication date from last year or from the currant year will be accepted. An exception may be made when a complete program is entered where some of the individual titles have an earlier publication date.
