The E-learning Association (ELA) intends to support e-learning buyers, vendors and professionals in a bid to maximise the benefits of online training. ELA plans to formally launch at the beginning of 2004, and is asking interested parties to give their views on how it should run. Co-founder of the ELA Rebecca Shepheard says the organisation will act as a repository of best practice in e-learning. The body will also help match buyers with appropriate suppliers.
