David Patterrson, of Learning Light.

Learning Light has redeveloped its popular E-learning Centre website to include much of the intellectual property of Becta, whose website has closed in the Coalition Government’s public sector cutbacks.

Learning Light, the centre of excellence which, among other things, publishes research on the UK and other European e-learning markets, has placed a wealth of Becta-owned information on its E-learning Centre website (www.e-learningcentre.co.uk) – making this site the only place where this information will now be available.

David Patterson, the operations director of Learning Light, the Sheffield-based organisation which focuses on promoting the use of e-learning and learning technologies, commented: “Over the years, Becta has amassed a great deal of valuable research and opinion articles in the field of education and learning technologies.

“We feel that this information – nicknamed ‘the Becta Collection’ - is a valuable resource for all those involved in the learning sector, both in the corporate world and academia. Consequently, we now host all of this information on the E-learning Centre website and it is, of course, free to use.”

The Becta Collection can be viewed at http://www.e-learningcentre.co.uk/Resources/Becta_Collection

“The E-learning Centre website, which regularly attracts up to 100,000 ‘hits’ a month, mainly from learning professionals in the UK and abroad, already contains a wealth of e-learning and learning technologies related information,” Patterson added.

“These include sections on ‘news and views’; reviews and resources; jobs; a directory of products and services, along with lists of subject matter experts, and both listings and reviews of learning-related events.”

Among the services outlined on the site are Learning Light’s own consultancy services. Learning Light’s Gillian Broadhead explained: “When the demand is for higher returns in shorter timescales you need to be sure you make the right investment in learning and development.

“In an ever growing global marketplace, employees are a great asset but they must have the right skills and knowledge to be able to keep driving your business forward. We believe that investing in e-learning to develop your employees is key to maintaining a competitive edge.”

Broadhead stressed that Learning Light is totally independent of e-learning vendors and distributors and so guarantees to give clients impartial advice, while aligning clients’ e-learning strategy with business objectives and identifying where e-learning can address the client’s organisational needs effectively.

“We guide clients through the process of developing an e-learning strategy and then measure the impact of that strategy on the client’s business – ensuring that clients see a positive return on their investment,” pledged Broadhead.
