Sheffield aims to be elearning capital of Europe


Sheffield’s plans to become the elearning capital of Europe are a step closer following the commencement of phase three of the digital campus’ development.

The digital campus, run by city development company, Creative Sheffield, is located in front of Sheffield’s train station and will be home to more than 3,000 creative and digital industries sector workers.

Already the first phase – Electric Works – is attracting companies to its 50,000 sq ft of flexible workspace while the second building is well underway. Now proposals for the design of the third building have been submitted.

Investment manager at Creative Sheffield, James Wilson said that Sheffield’s elearning status has been boosted thanks to the opening of the new Kineo office, but hopes that other established companies such as Can Studios and Tribal will decide to come onboard.

"Sheffield already has a larger number of elearning companies than anywhere in the UK and more are being drawn to the city because of the depth of the talent pool as well as the lifestyle offered by a city on the edge of a National Park," he said.

"With the digital campus well underway, we are gearing up to attract even more elearning companies here to join leaders such as Kineo, Learning Light, LINE, Desq, The Workshop, Peakdean and Ufi, and a whole range of specialist studios, to make Sheffield Europe’s elearning hub," he added.
