After more than 20 years as an unincorporated association with around 150 members, the eLearning Network (eLN) – a non-profit organisation run by the e-learning community for the e-learning community – is beginning its first full year as a community interest company (CIC).
In its last year as an unincorporated body and with a new membership structure including free associate membership, the eLN saw its membership rise tenfold and, now it is a CIC, its membership stands at over 2,000.
“This rapid growth in our membership reflects not just the increase in interest in all things to do with e-learning but also illustrates how technology-delivered learning is touching more and more aspects of our economy – throughout the private and public sectors as well as in academia,” commented Clive Shepherd, Chair of the eLN CIC and a widely respected e-learning consultant and commentator.
At the Learning Technologies event, in London’s Olympia – on 28th January – Clive Shepherd will be leading a free-to-attend seminar exploring the e-learning skills gap.
In addition to running this seminar for visitors to the Learning Technologies event, the eLN will have a stand at the accompanying exhibition where visitors can find out more about the organisation’s networking services, webinars and programme of one-day conferences throughout the year. Each conference focuses on a key issue for learning professionals and offers practical tips and guidance for delegates, as well as providing networking opportunities.
