Learning technology is the broad range of communication, information and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching, and assessment.
Founded in 1993, ALT is registered charity number 1063519. We are the UK's leading membership organisation in the learning technology field. Our purpose is to ensure that use of learning technology is effective and efficient, informed by research and practice, and grounded in an understanding of the underlying technologies, their capabilities and the situations into which they are placed.
We do this by improving practice, promoting research, and influencing policy, through bringing together practitioners, researchers, and policy makers in learning technology.
Currently ALT has as members over 900 individuals and over 225 organisations, including universities, colleges, Government departments, agencies, and software, hardware, and e-learning businesses.
Our work is supported by a small staff team based in Oxford in the UK.
