Bridge-eLearning is a consortium aiming to bring together Human Resources professionals from large companies and experts from training organizations (internationally recognized business and engineering schools). The consortium provides a framework enabling its partners to share best practices in management and technology, to share eLearning content of a high technological and educational quality, innovative online learning experiences and approaches, and eLearning opportunities and needs. The basis of the project’s business model is the development of a shared catalogue of eLearning courses that is enriched by partners over the years. Bridge-eLearning is administered by a Steering Committee, together with the eLearning Committee at the operational and functional level. The paper presents the objectives and functioning of Bridge eLearning, the achievements of the first year of existence and the perspectives for the next years.
