eduhub is the Swiss academic e-learning community of stakeholders and experts of e-learning and new learning technologies at Swiss Higher Education Institutions. Over 80% of e-learning specialists and stakeholders at Swiss Higher Education Institutions are represented in this community, which at present counts nearly 900 active members (last update: January 2017). However, the community is also open for everyone else interested in new learning technologies and willing to participate. Thus, we also maintain international contacts with our counterparts abroad to think outside the "eduhub box".
The mission of eduhub is to foster knowledge exchange and collaboration between the members of the community in the field of new learning technologies at Swiss Higher Education Institutions, with the goal to implement sustainable IT-based methods in academic teaching at Swiss Higher Education Institutions and to strengthen the community and its visibility nationally and internationally.
eduhub is a platform for networking and knowledge exchange on new learning technologies at Swiss Higher Education Institutions. To foster knowledge exchange collaboration, SWITCH regularly organises online and face to face events for eduhub, such as:
eduhub is coordinated and funded by SWITCH, the Swiss National Research and Education Network (NREN). SWITCH created eduhub in 2008 to offer networking and assistance to e-learning specialists from all Swiss universities – lecturers, researchers, e-learning support staff and anyone else with an interest in the subject and employed at Swiss Higher Education Institutions.
