eLearning Network and Forum in merger talks


The eLearning Network (ELN) and The Forum for Technology in Training – the leading professional bodies for users and developers of technology based learning, including e-learning – have agreed to being talks with a view to merging.

Vaughan Waller, director of consultancy at Bridge-Learning and chairman of the ELN, said: “To do their jobs effectively, users and developers of technology based learning materials need access to the information, knowledge and expertise of others within their industry, along with networking opportunities to help them enhance their experience.
“The result of this is an authoritative voice which can, if necessary, represent their views and concerns to the Government.

“The membership of the ELN are excited at the prospect of merging with The Forum,” he continued. “When combined, the resulting body will enable our industry to raise its profile within the UK economy.”

Karen Velasco, of Centrica and chairman of The Forum, commented: “The Forum and the ELN have both been influential in shaping the way in which the UK has used technology in training over the past few years.
“With an increase in e-learning usage forecast over the next few years, it is essential that the UK has a single, powerful body to represent the needs of users and corporates alike,” she added. “The potential merger between the Forum and the ELN represents an exciting opportunity for collaboration and influence, and is supported by the Forum board and members.”
