AIA National Closes e-Classroom

From AIA National:

The American Institute of Architects remains firmly committed to the professional development and education needs of its 80,000 members. However, through surveys and feedback from members, we’ve learned that an overwhelming majority would prefer education programs that are offered in-person or through local AIA components.

As a result, eClassroom, the AIA’s online distance education program, has ended service as of Friday, November 30, 2007. Courses registrations are no longer being accepted.

All eClassroom customers have been notified by e-mail that the service will no longer be available. The few customers who have previously registered for, but not yet completed, an eClassroom course have been notified that they have until Friday, February 22, 2008, to finish coursework. On that date, at 11 p.m. (CT), the eClassroom Web site will be taken offline.

Components are encouraged to direct members searching for continuing education alternatives to an online database of providers whose programs satisfy AIA/CES requirements:
