Great Britain is dragging its heels on e-learning— lagging behind much of Europe, according to a leading industry figure. "The UK seems to be sluggish in terms of uptake," says Sa'ad Mehat, chairman of consultancy P4You. "Growth is very slow— traditional learning is still dominant." The Government's consultation on its e-learning strategy closed on January 31, 2004 but no date has been set for the release of any details. A spokeswoman for the Department for Education and Skills says the responses will be gathered together and considered and a paper will be issued later in 2004.
