University of East London participated in the national Benchmarking of E-Learning exercise focusing on e-learning culture, infrastructure, and expertise. This project was managed by the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA) and used the Embedding Learning Technologies Institutionally (ELTI) methodology to guide its activities and data collection. Academics, non-academic staff, and UEL students shared their opinions about the state of e-learning, thus providing rich data for capacity analysis and shaping an institutional e-learning strategy. We discovered several emerging themes: change and continuous improvement in e-learning culture, infrastructure, and expertise; development of a comprehensive e-learning staff development portfolio of programs and resources; embedding e-learning into all policies and practices; and developing our internal and external communication strategy to support e-learning implementation and our sustainable staff culture change. UEL was selected as one of 28 UK institutions to participate in the Phase 1 Pathfinder program funded by the HEA.
