The federal programme Swiss Virtual Campus (SVC), which was conducted from 2000 to 2008, is at the origin of the Swiss e-Learning Community eduhub. The programme aimed at promoting Internet-based learning at Swiss Higher Education Institutions.
When the programme of the Swiss Virtual Campus was concluded in 2008, the community of e-learning specialists, which had developed out of the Swiss Virtual Campus programme, should be maintained. So the e-Learning Support Centres of Swiss Higher Education Institutions made an application to SWITCH to maintain the e-learning community by providing and conducting a community platform, coordinate the community and organise events for it. Thus, in 2008 the Swiss e-Learning Community eduhub came into life.
The eduhub Community, which in 2008 started with around 600 active members, is since then continually growing and today counts over 900 active members (last update: October 2017).
