This year's conference, which was held
in Cotonou, Benin, from 23rd – 25th May, saw the launch of The
eLearning Africa 2012 Report. The Report is based on a detailed
survey of nearly five hundred education professionals across the
Continent, and marks the first significant attempt to provide a
snapshot of how ICT and better connectivity are believed to be
changing the face of education in Africa.
These are some of the key findings of
The eLearning Africa 2012 Survey, completed by 447 respondents. The
eLearning Africa 2012 Report, which is the first of its kind,
bringing together the views of eLearning professionals and a range of
other stakeholders from across 41 African countries.
What role does the ICT-enhanced
learning and training community play in contributing towards Africa's
growth and development? This is the overarching question that frames
The eLearning Africa 2012 Report. How do people define ICT-enhanced
learning and training? What technologies are being used within the
sector? In what contexts are they being used? What motivates people
to use ICT and how do they make use of it? Each of these questions is
explored through the Survey analysis.
The eLearning Africa Report aims to
provide regular, yearly snapshots of the eLearning experience in
Africa, with the aim of fostering richer, more nuanced conversations,
healthier decision-making and more effective action-taking towards
ensuring Education for All in Africa.
