ELI Community Exchange

The ELI community is designed to facilitate the sharing of ideas and innovations among higher education professionals committed to advancing learning through IT innovation. ELI members contribute, collaborate, challenge, and investigate. Through ELI you'll find colleagues who are working on similar issues, and through the "exchange" you can share ideas and explore common interests with them.


Our members often express interest in volunteering, from mentoring, to submitting a white paper or presenting at an ELI event, there are many ways to connect, collaborate and make an impact within your profession.

Share Innovations

The EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative is searching for innovative practices, technologies, and projects among our member institutions that expand the horizons of teaching, learning, and technology. Send an e-mail to Veronica Diaz if you have an innovation you would like to share.

Please include the following:

  • institution name
  • campus contact
  • brief description of the idea

Community Forum

The ELI Community Forum is provided by the ELI to support dialogue among members and other interested participants coming together around teaching and learning. The Forum uses an open, self-subscription listserv in order to encourage wide and open participation.
