Learning Light (LL), a non-profit organisation, has appointed to its Board of Directors:

• Lorna Cocking, who becomes chair of LL. She has worked for Pearson Education for 13 years, first as Publishing Director for UK Schools and, over the last two years, as Director of Education. Her previous roles combined publishing and education – particularly in open learning contexts. She was Director of Open Learning at the University of Sunderland and Publishing Director at the Open College.

Cocking has been a member of the Board of the British Educational Communications and Technology Authority (Becta) since 1998. She has recently served on two task forces: the Post-16 E-learning Task Force, which produced the report, ‘Get on with IT!’, and the LSC’s Distributed and Electronic Learning Group. She is a member of the CBI’s Education and Training Panel and Committee, a Director of an Academy in Lewisham and a member of the Goodison Strategy Group. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce (RSA).

• Helen Milner, who joins LL as a non-executive director. The Ufi’s Strategic Business Development Group, which she heads, covers marketing, research and policy, and includes the team which co-ordinates the learndirect advice service.

Milner, who has over 12 years experience of developing online learning systems, joined Ufi in July 1999 as Head of Distributed Learning - the team responsible for establishing a network of learning centres throughout England, Northern Ireland and Wales. She was appointed Director of Distributed Learning in April 2000.

She was previously the Project Director of the North East Ufi Pilot Phase II and the ADAPT3 Ufi Project, which ran until the end of 2000. She was also the project manager for the first Ufi pilot activity in 1997 to 1998 and has played an extensive role in helping to take forward Ufi policy.

• Donald Clark has become a non-executive director of LL. He has been involved in the e-learning industry for more than 20 years, designing some of the first computer-based learning programmes in the early 1980s.

Clark went on to co-found Epic Group PLC in 1986, now the UK's market leader in e-learning. In 2001, Donald won the 'Outstanding Achievement in E-learning Award' at the World Open Learning Conference (WOLCE), and has taken Epic on to win numerous awards for business innovation and for technology-based learning programmes and implementations.

Now retired from Epic, Clark recently joined the board of Ufi and remains committed to e-learning and its potential to revolutionise the access to and delivery of education for both individuals and businesses.

• Roy Butcher, who has been appointed a non-executive director of LL. Butcher is Group Chief Executive of Clugston Group Ltd, a £100m organisation with interests in construction, distribution, industrial services and property development. He is also a Member of the Prince’s Trust Regional Council for Yorkshire & The Humber.

Butcher’s career has developed via the finance route. After a time in the brewing industry, he became Group Finance Director of ASD Plc, the steel stockholding group.

He has held non-executive posts with ASD Plc and Galloway (Holdings) Ltd and is currently Non-Executive Chairman of Barrett Steel Ltd, a steel stockholding group with an annual turnover of some £250m.

Supported by Yorkshire Forward, the regional development agency for Yorkshire, and the Humber and Objective 1 South Yorkshire, LL has a nationwide – and international - remit to provide bespoke and individual services to help both buyers and suppliers of learning technologies. LL’s current services include research, membership and professional/consultancy services for those associated with e-learning.
