The European Learning Industry Group (ELIG) has today confirmed the latest additions to its Executive Committee. The three new appointments, senior executives from IBM, Elsevier, and Cambridge University Press, join their counterparts from the likes of Inter, IMD, and Blackboard. ELIG’s remit is to explore and promote 'innovation in learning' throughout the European Union, and is looking to expand its presence at events including Online Educa and eLearning Africa.

Co-chair Fabrizio Cardinali, the CEO of Giunti Labs, said: "Use of technology enables personalised learning approaches which will provide organisations with a workforce capable of learning and re-learning in the face of the challenges presented by the current economic crisis".

ELIG co-chair, Joe Hegarty, who is the Director of Operations at Intel Innovations Centres, said: "The role of ICT in supporting the development of 21st century skills, especially those needed in modern industry, is well documented. These skills are not well supported by traditional learning approaches. Self-motivated, individualized, group and collaborative learning processes, supported by ICT will contribute significantly to the preparation of a more flexible modern workforce".

Membership to ELIG has more than doubled since 2007, and is increasingly seen as a major voice in the learning industry.
