    But e-learning cannot provide the skills of tomorrow on its own. learning is providing only shallow learning of compliance topics - not the profound learning you get through interaction with other people. The most needed skills of tomorrow will be interpersonal, and e-learning is not going to provide these. learning (digital) provides a better description. Today saw a tremendous gathering of the who's who of UK learning technologies in the historic debating chamber of the Oxford Union.

SHL train something like 10,000 people a year to use their tests, most of whom are HR people. With Epic's help, SHL have moved from pure classroom-based delivery to a blend that involves self-study e-learning prior to the face-to-face event. Nothing unusual in that you might think.

    A survey by Cegos Group , reported in this month's issue of e.learning age magazine, finds that companies in the UK are leading the way in Europe by providing training to some 61% of their staff. In France, Germany and Italy, less than half has any training. Consider also that more companies in the UK are benefiting from technology-driven training programmes than their EC counterparts. To quote the article: "While the UK is training more people, it is running shorter programmes and spending less on professional development than its European counterparts.
