Abstract

As a form of Corporate – Higher Education Alliance (“Alliance”), Bridge-eLearning (www.bridge-elearning. com) is a consortium (“Consortium”) that was created in May 2004. Its purpose is the advancement of e-learning content and practices within the corporate and higher education worlds. The project design intent was to build a more effective bridge between these two worlds and to foster high value by assembling a small number of members from Europe and North America. The ambition of this not-for-profit consortium was moderate. Pragmatic and attainable objectives were set for the initial three-year plan. A balanced collaborative business model is based on investment from each of the consortium members; and common values such as fairness, trust, collaboration and risk sharing are fostered among all members.
