About the eLearning Network

The eLearning Network (eLN) is a non-profit, Community Interest Company run by the eLearning community for the learning community.

The eLN is the number one source for guidance on best practice and future trends in technology-based learning and development at work, with over 3000 members in the UK and beyond.

We also independently judge the Learning Technologies Awards. Click here to find out more.

What do we strive for?

To inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen the Learning Technology community.
Learning Technology is central to the future of L&D.

The eLN believes that not only is technology at the heart of L&D’s future but that it is already a fundamental part of the L&D toolkit. Organisations that aren’t already utilizing technology are missing a key tool to support organisational learning. Deployed correctly learning technology is fundamental to organisational performance.

The eLN will strive to:
• Make technology easier to understand
• Share knowledge and experience
• Provide access to best practice information
• Drive quality and innovation
• Provide opportunities to collaborate and share knowledge

Phil Reddall
Phil ReddalleLN Chair
My role as a strategic learning, technology and innovation consultant for a Managed Learning Service provider puts me in an unusual and independent position between clients and suppliers. Working at both at the tactical and at the strategic levels of e-Learning allows me to see the forces that affect our industry from both a consumer and producer perspective.

I now plan to use my experience of understanding and satisfying the needs of such a wide range of actors to contribute to the industry to which I belong. The eLN exists to serve the needs of the whole industry and my goal is to bring my unique perspective to bear on its activities and to help broaden its appeal.

Richard Hyde
Richard HydeeLN Vice Chair (Web Site)
After gaining a PhD at Nottingham University, Richard has built up a number of organisations over the past 15 years but now works as a Learning Consultant for Learning Pool. His time in the industry has involved wearing many hats, though his enduring passion is for creative design, and this is something he pursues in a professional and personal capacity. In this trend-ridden industry of ours he loves to find elegant simplicity in learning design. He helps judge the annual eLearning Awards and has contributed to several award winning projects over the years. He is delighted to be on the eLN board and looks forward to helping drive an exciting agenda of networking events and other initiatives.
Toby Harris
Toby HarriseLN Vice Chair (Learning Technologies and Conference)
I've been involved in different parts of the elearning industry since 2010. Mostly, I've spent this time working on high-end content and platform projects. I've also campaigned for our sector and industry to base more of our work on empirically proven science and, above all, to think more like app-designers than learning managers.

I don't think any of us can afford to stand still. New technologies and the skills they require are continuing to transform the world around us and create new challenges. The eLN does a fantastic job in pushing our industry forward and I'm excited about coming on board to help deliver the best possible events and resources for our members.

Lindsey Coode
Lindsey CoodeeLN Director (Marketing and Newsletter)
As Head of Content for Learning Pool, I am passionate about creating engaging content that stirs a real enthusiasm for learning amongst users. With extensive experience in instructional design and project management, I’m passionate about working on innovative projects, such as Adapt, which are reshaping the future for L & D.

I’m always keen to share my knowledge at events, whether on behalf of the eLearning Network or Learning Pool, and I always come away having learnt something new also. Hearing from and watching learners engage with new ways of learning has to be one of the most satisfying things.

I firmly believe that the eLearning Network has a huge role to play in this by bringing together suppliers and users, experts and those who wish to develop expertise; allowing everybody to share their experience and knowledge for the benefit of the whole community.
Sharing my knowledge at events such as Learning Pool Live and via our online series of webinars gives me a real kick. Hearing from and watching learners engage with new ways of learning has to be one of the most satisfying things.
