e-learning news in brief  

– Gareth Harris, a member of the training team at the Chelsea Building
Society, has become the first UK employee to win a European Diploma in
e-learning. Harris was awarded the Certified e-Learning Professional (CeLP) Diploma
by the UK Institute of IT Training and this led to a further award from the
European Institute for e-learning (ElfEL). The latter recognised the high
standards achieved by Harris in creating, operating and managing e-learning
programmes for the building society.  www.eife-l.org   www.trainingfoundation.com

– The Virginia Institute of Social Services Training Activities (VISSTA) at
Virginia Commonwealth University is installing a Pathlore learning management
system (LMS) to track and report on the training of more than 40,000 people.
These include day-care providers, adoptive parents, foster care parents,
lawyers, judges and 8,000 social workers. It previously ran five different
tracking systems that made it difficult to get a state-wide view of training
and development needs.  www.pathlore.com

– Techshare 2004 is calling for papers for its November conference that will
consider the role technology plays in learning, work and society for people
with sight problems. Those areas in which the Content Steering Group
particularly welcomes presentations include innovation in education, web
authoring accessibility, mobile technology and technology in the workplace.  www.rnib.org.uk/techshare
