E-Learn Memphis was created by the Corporate Advanced Distributed Learning Co-Lab in 2006 following the first E-Learning Summit held at the University of Memphis.
Since 2006, E-Learn Memphis has conducted monthly meetings and seminars on current e-learning topics, with a wide variety of speakers. Expert presenters have come from academic programs, corporations, non-profit organizations, and health-related professions. E-Learn Memphis has hosted several virtual presentations with experts from organizations beyond the geographic region. E-Learn Memphis occasionally hosts special events such as a recent “SCORM school” day-long workshop.
E-Learn Memphis participants often recruit colleagues from within their own organizations to attend the monthly meetings. The networking aspect of the meetings has been valuable for students seeking internships and jobs, and for organizations seeking talent. Most of the major corporations in the Memphis area regularly send representatives to the monthly meetings, and this has provided key opportunities for interaction for students and professionals.
