Brighton, Sussex, United Kingdom, 2007/02/16 - Epic, the UK’s leading e-learning company, will shift the focus of the resources it offers through its well-regarded Thought Leadership Programme in response to greater maturity in the use of e-learning.
According to a recent analysis of the market commissioned by Epic, e-learning now represents 3-4% of of private sector training provision in the UK, a statistic which confirms, in Epic’s view, that e-learning is past the stage of ‘Innovators’ on the adoption bell curve and into ‘Early Adopters’.
Beginning with the launch of The Epic Blog,featuring contributions from clients, partners and associates as well as inhouse experts, Epic’s research and resource effort will adopt a more collaborative style.
‘Many organisations are growing more mature in their use of learning technologies,’ says Matt Gokhool, CEO of Epic, ‘and our research and resource operation must change accordingly. We will continue to support those getting started in e-learning, but there will also be more focus on supporting the advocates of e-learning within organisations.’
In addition to the Epic Blog, launched this week, Epic has plans in the coming months for an e-learning wiki, as well as new-style events. The company is also planning to make its historical resources, including its extensive range of white papers, more readily available.
"We call on the champions of the new learning technologies to join us in this community of practice,’ says Matt Gokhool, ‘contributing, debating; helping to push forward the use of new technologies and practices that are bringing real dynamism to the business of improving organisational performance.’
