The conference, eLearning Africa, will bring together international education and technology specialists, government ministers, entrepreneurs and investors to discuss opportunities for expanding Africa’s growing education sector. It is a subject which lies at the heart of the African Union’s plans for turning Africa into a “transformed continent” by 2063 and it will be discussed and debated during 3 days of intensive presentations, workshops, seminars and ministerial meetings in the west African capital from 23 – 25 October. Major international organisations, such as UNESCO, ISESCO, BOAD, the European Commission, the Mastercard Foundation, ADEA, Worldwide Web Foundation, ACBF and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) feature prominently on the conference programme.
eLearning Africa, which is an annual, pan-African conference, dedicated to examining the potential for using new communications technology to spread educational opportunity, is now in its fourteenth year. Since the conference, which visits a different African capital each year, was first held in Addis Ababa in 2005, technology assisted learning has expanded massively and now plays a major role in the delivery of learning, training, research and development in schools, colleges, universities, companies and organisations across Africa. It has enabled millions of Africans to expand their horizons and take advantage of the countless possibilities new technology offers to study and acquire new skills and qualifications.
