The Summit delegates – drawn from the private and public sectors as well as academia – will discuss the European and world markets for e-learning, identify industry trends and the key issues in e-learning today. These issues are likely to include the growing trend towards the use of rapid authoring tools in-house as well as the move towards the personalisation and contextualisation of all forms of online learning.

“Holding the European e-learning Summit in Sheffield sends a number of signals to both Government and industry,” said David Patterson, operations director of Learning Light, the Sheffield-based company which focuses on promoting the use of e-learning and learning technologies and which has organised the Summit.

“It’s important that Government decision makers realise the key role that corporate e-learning plays in supporting change and helping to maintain competitive advantage, as well as promoting increased worker efficiency and effectiveness in difficult economic times. We hope that the results of the Summit will help to promote such a realisation.

“Then, we want to send a message to organisations in all sectors of the economy: that e-learning can make a difference to their performance – not just in terms of saving money from the learning and development budget but also in terms of increasing worker efficiency and profitability.

“Finally, we’re delighted that the European e-learning Summit is being held in Sheffield because it is the acknowledged capital of the corporate e-learning industry in the UK – in the light of articles published not only in the UK but also in the USA recently,” he said.

The summit is also being supported by learndirect – the e-learning provider which is one of the largest contributors to the UK government’s skills targets – and by Creativesheffield, a city development company, charged with delivering Sheffield's economic transformation.

In addition to the discussions taking place at the Summit, Learning Light will also be revealing to delegates its latest – third - definitive report into the UK e-learning sector. The report will complement Learning Light’s reports of 2007 and 2009 – the most recent of which suggested that the annual size of the UK e-learning industry is between £300m and £450m and forecast growth rates for 2010 of between 6.7% and 8%.

As with its 2009 report, Learning Light has gathered the information for the 2010 report – which not only covers the UK but also the rest of Europe - from a series of interviews with organisations engaged in the e-learning market, from micro-businesses developing innovative technologies to established major service and product suppliers in the UK. In producing this report, Learning Light’s goal is to provide both suppliers and purchasers with an understanding of what’s possible, what’s available and where e-learning services and products are going.

Delegates are coming to the Summit from as far afield as Italy, Greece and Eastern Europe, including the Czech Republic. One delegate/observer is coming from Australia.

About the Learning Light Report
This report began as a simple attempt to update the report written by John Helmer, on behalf of Learning Light, in 2007 on the size and value of the UK e-learning industry. The 2009 Report updated this by interviewing a number of leading players (vendors) in the industry to ask their view of the market and by further seeking to quantify the market size. This series of semi-structured interviews was continued for the 2010 report.
