Thank you from UEG E-learning!

Thank you from UEG E-learning!

We wouldn’t be able to provide high-quality, valued content if not for our contributors.

This month has seen UEG E-learning reach a wonderful landmark, with 3,000 learners actively taking a UEG online course. Added to this are the thousands of pageviews attracted by our Mistakes in… series—more than 38,000 so far this year alone! Given UEG’s aim to enhance the education of young professionals in the field, we’re delighted that our content is being so well used.

Of course, we wouldn’t be in the position to provide such high-quality, valued content were it not for our contributors. Now, therefore, seems an appropriate time to say a big thank you to all our authors for their time, expertise and enthusiasm.

Here, you’ll find a few UEG E-learning facts, figures and thoughts that demonstrate just how far the project has come in the past few years (since January 2014). At the end of this blog, you’ll find a list of the UEG E-learning content that’s currently available and the names of all our fantastic contributors. If you haven’t had a chance to look at our content then I recommend looking at the list and visiting the UEG Education website.

Thank you, once more, to all our contributors—we truly appreciate your generosity and investment in UEG E-learning and look forward to working with you again in the future!
