eLearning/Industry Collaboration

Learning technology is developed and used across a broad range of sectors, spanning from primary to higher education and from public sector to private industry, and an extensive degree of collaboration takes place between education and industry.

The Industry Collaboration section is intended to provide a forum to highlight the synergies that exist between participants in the learning technology area, and to help promote and develop stronger links across sectors.  We hope that it will provide members with a platform where they can:

  • Build and extend collaborative links between institutions and industry
  • Share and exchange ideas about products & technologies
  • Develop and share best practices
  • Showcase applications of learning technologies
  • Source information and resources on technology and e-learning providers
