IEEE Learning Network Article

THE INSTITUTE Finding all the continuing-education programs IEEE offers used to require searching more than 40 websites, platforms, and portals. That’s no longer the case. The new IEEE Learning Network (ILN) is a centralized website that provides access to more than 700 courses, webinars, and eLearning programs.


More than a dozen IEEE groups have provided content so far, including the Computer SocietyFuture Directions, Humanitarian Activities, the Power & Energy Society, and the Standards Association.


 “We are all committed to providing the best possible learning experience to IEEE members and others in the engineering and technical community,” says Witold Kinser, vice president, IEEE Educational Activities. “We are pleased to offer this easy-to-use portal to help people find the IEEE educational content they need to advance in their career.”

IEEE would like to invite you to explore society Resource Centers.  Visit the Resource Centers and utilize all of the valuable content that is provided such as tutorials and conference videos and slides. All material is consolidated in one location and made available to society members for free.  


This valuable content is also available to non-members for a small fee! The IEEE Resource Centers is organized by content type and is user-friendly, making it very easy to locate and view. Now you can go to your IEEE society Resource Centers to find and view content that will help you expand your knowledge base.

The Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT) Steering Committee is currently inviting proposals for sustainable development and humanitarian activities related projects. The committee will review submissions with budgets between $1,000 and US$19,999. Proposals should take a holistic, community-based approach taking account of relevant environmental, cultural, socio-economic & infrastructural issues and policy priorities. Project teams must demonstrate consultation with and a clear understanding of the needs of target communities, and demonstrate a needs-driven approach to strengthening local capacity through technology deployment. Please note that applications should be submitted by an existing SIGHT group; visit the HAC & SIGHT websites for more information and to review the Call for Proposals.

Presentation videos from the 3rd annual IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges (VIC) Summit & Honors Ceremony are available to watch now on the Awards Ceremony Showcase page of IEEE.tv. See valuable presentations from the VIC Summit, robot demos, and the presentation of each of IEEE’s highest awards.

IEEE-USA's August Free E-Book: Thomas Edison--Man of the Millennium--Vol. 1: The Legacy

IEEE-USA's August Free E-Book Looks at the Legacy of Thomas Edison--The World's Greatest Inventor

Thomas Edison provided us with a lifetime legacy of highly creative invention.  He and his staff kept project details in the 4,000 lab notebooks they left behind. Edison may have spent a great deal of time in his labs, but he did not create all his prototypes himself. He personally handpicked his very capable staff, and worked with them to transform his ideas into three-dimensional models for testing. Hiring the right people was a hallmark of his most inventive mind.


New Features Added to IEEE Payment Manager

This summer, MCE will roll out the next phase of IEEE Payment Manager, which will expand the services and benefits offered to conference organizers, including options to send international wire transfers in USD, CAD, or Euro through the online portal.

Other notable enhancements include:

- Display of account balances to verify sufficient funds
- Conversion feature shows USD equivalent for non-USD requests
- Ability to select expense classifications for all payment methods via an easy-to-use dropdown menu

To submit requests via IEEE Payment Manager, please visit:payments.ieee.org
