Learning Light and Creativesheffield have welcomed the publication of the ‘top ten movers and shakers in e-learning’ lists because they believe these lists endorse their choice of delegates to the European e-learning Summit, held at the end of 2010 in Sheffield.
Of the 31 names on the three lists published on 4th January, ten of them were delegates at the Summit, while a further five were invited to the Summit but were unable to attend.
In all, there were some 48 delegates at the Summit, which agreed a manifesto for e-learning and reviewed Learning Light’s research on the UK and other European e-learning markets - ‘The UK e-learning market 2010’, available from the Learning Light and E-learning Centre websites, price £499. The manifesto is intended to help delegates pursue dialogue with their national governments to establish a single, independent and impartial body representing the corporate e-learning sector.
“We were delighted to be able to host the European e-learning Summit,” said Creativesheffield’s director of business investment, David Fletcher. “It is encouraging to see that our view of who are the key influencers in the UK’s and other countries’ e-learning markets has now been largely confirmed by the 2011 ‘top ten’ lists.”
“I’m delighted to see that, this year for the first time, a member of the Learning Light team – Gillian Broadhead – has been named in the UK list,” said David Kay, of Sero Consulting and the chairman of Learning Light, the Sheffield-based organisation which focuses on promoting the use of e-learning and learning technologies. “We feel that, in a small but significant way, this validates our efforts as an encourager and promoter of the corporate e-learning sector.”
