Guild Masters

The eLearning Guild is a community of practice for those involved in eLearning and learning technologies. Our goal is to enable members to share their knowledge, expertise, and ideas with other members—and our success is dependent on member’s willingness to do so. The purpose of the Guild Master Award is to recognize those members who have consistently contributed to the community in terms of both quantity and quality of content—and thus helped make the community a vibrant center for learning.

New Guild Masters will be announced at all future eLearning Guild events.
