The future of education in all its contexts and applications is an exciting space to be in. Whether education takes the form of formal, informal or non-formal education, there is no doubt that modern delivery and learning methodologies are changing the face of education across the entire spectrum. With the transformation to the digital age and the creation and adoption of massive open online course (MOOC) platforms, learning management systems, multimedia, video, online conferencing, podcasting and chat rooms have substituted for or augmented conventional practice in education, professional and corporate learning delivery. Social media platforms and advanced educational technology (edtech), employing artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics are enabling the modification of learning activities.

Through disruptive transformation and scaling of formal education and professional learning, these multiple technologies are redefining learning itself. The acceleration of edtech innovation and adoption of eLearning shows no signs of slowing. HELI focuses on the learning needs of those who work in, or aspire to work in, education or professional learning practice and who seek advanced and specialised knowledge of eLearning.
