E-learning tracked

Membership associations and groups that provide management or technical support to nonprofits are outpacing other nonprofits in their use of e-learning, a new report says.

E-Learning in Nonprofits and Associations, the 2005 report by LearnSomething in Tallahassee, Fla., and the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network in San Francisco, also found that use of self-paced e-learning grew faster in 2005 than did other formats.

Among 481 individuals who responded to the survey, which builds on an initial survey conducted in 2004, just over half said they saw value in integrating with a learning-management system other more common types of nonprofit technology they were using, such as association-management systems, e-mail-marketing applications and fundraising software.

Among nonprofits with annual budgets greater than $50 million, 84 percent said they used e-learning, as did 69 percent of nonprofits with annual budgets greater than $10 million.
