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 the 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 HEI made an application to SWITCH to maintain the e-learning community by providing and conducting a community platform, community management and organise events for the community. 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 counts nearly 900 active members today (last update: January 2017).
