The International E-Learning Association (IELA) is dedicated to advancing the knowledge and practice of e-learning in schools and universities, and in the workplace.
With members hailing from every continent —and from the realms of business, industry, government, and academia— the IELA is a vibrant and diverse community of e-learning professionals, researchers, and students.
The specific goals of the IELA are to:
Serve as a catalyst for the development and exchange of Blog & Research among universities, educational institutions, government agencies, funding agencies, conferences, and businesses;
Publish materials advancing the use of e-learning;
Promote excellence in e-learning research, development and use;
Disseminate information about e-learning opportunities and use to the public, the media, governments, and business and industry;
Share and promote policies, procedures, and practices with respect to all matters regarding the use of e-learning; and
Cooperate and liaise with related regional, national and international associations.
The International E-Learning Awards are given each year for the best work in e-learning, mobile learning, and blended learning, in two divisions: Academic and Business/Industry. All submissions are evaluated by the IELA Awards Committee, who look for a variety of attributes. These include, among others, educational soundness and effectiveness, usability, and overall significance.
