PISCATAWAY, N.J., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IEEE, the world's largest technical professional association for the advancement of technology, today announced the launch of the IEEE eLearning Library. The IEEE eLearning Library is composed of nearly 200 short, online courses in core and emerging technologies. Each course was developed and peer-reviewed by subject experts and awards continuing education units (CEU) or professional development hours (PDH) upon successful completion.
