Paris (F), January 2018 - A big hello and "Happy New Year" to all the Checkpoint readers across Europe and the world.
Introducing Learning Technologies France: an 18 year old show that is brand new
This is our first ever special edition in the great media resource that is CHECK.point eLearning. I am the founder of eLearnExpo series of events (Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam, Moscow and Hong Kong), the main one being Paris started in 2001. In 2006 the French event became I-Learning forum and went from strength to strength to become the leading enterprise eLearning show in the Francophone world.
During that time it also became a major forum for the digitalisation national education and language learning and today covers all aspects of digital learning. Last January my dream came true and we were able to merge forces with the best eLearning show in the world : Learning Technologies London. Thanks to investment and resources from London (*), we have been able to bring Learning Technologies France event to you, bigger, better and bolder than ever before.
