Last year 16 higher education institutions worked together on the challenge of providing evidence of e-learning success that will help influence academic skeptics and reflect the considerable changes that have taken place in the first few years of the 21st century. The project was funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and it partnered with the Association for Learning Technology and the Higher Education Academy to commission case studies over a range of disciplines including business, health and humanities. The case studies covered a rich spectrum of activity that reflect the diverse motivations for organizations in engaging in learning technology. Defining tangible benefit taxed the practitioners but by working together the evidence built iteratively and groups of higher level benefits began to be defined. These are: 1 cost savings/resource efficiency, 2. recruitment and retention, 3. skills and employment, and 4. student achievement.
