The eLearning stories of success are being jointly published with Towards Maturity, the highly regarded benchmarking organisation which developed the case studies.
The spotlight on Macmillan Cancer Support for example, focuses on innovative L&D at the charity, which is celebrating its centenary this year. The case study is a great example of how much can be achieved by initially just one person - and then a small L&D team - at the cancer care and support charity.
"You don't need a large team to develop an interactive, user focused learning environment. Neither do you need to create resources if appropriate generic content already exists," explains case study author Lesley Price of Towards Maturity. "Macmillan achieved success by staying focused, by bringing together a range of resources from different providers but giving it a Macmillan look and feel, and only creating content when trying to meet specific user needs."
Each case study ends with useful hints and tips, from lessons learnt by the organisations along the way.
Martin Baker, the founder and CEO of the Consortium, will also take part in the lunchtime panel debate in the World of Learning Conference: 'How can L&D deliver with reduced time and budgets?'
Several charity members of the Consortium are also taking an active part in the Conference, helping to raise the profile of charity learning.
Nancy Ouma, Assessment & Training Manager at VSO, will be presenting on the hot topic of social learning; Peter Coley, Head of Learning & Development at St Mungo's, the charity which helps homeless people, will be focusing on what happens after training, and - vitally - how you get behaviour to then change. And Gareth Gilleeney, Learning & Development Manager at housing and homelessness charity Shelter, will be joining Martin Baker on the lunchtime panel debate.
