Conference sneak preview

eLearning Africa 2012 Report goes online!

The eLearning Africa 2012 Report is now available for download! The Report was launched by Max Ahouèkè, Benin’s Minister of Communication and Information and Communication Technologies, at the Opening Plenary Session of eLearning Africa 2012 on Wednesday, May 23rd.

The eLearning Africa 2012 Report offers an up-to-date look at how Africans are using new technologies to enhance education and training across Africa. The report uses data collected from 447 survey respondents and contains detailed analyses by a number of prominent commentators including traditional chiefs, investors and academics from across Africa.


The survey results indicate that the majority of respondents use ICT in classroom teaching and learning. Although most of those who participated in the survey were encouraged by the potential of ICT to improve the quality of their teaching practices,  some respondents were constrained by limitations in bandwidth, funds, electricity supply and insufficient human resource capacity.

Nevertheless, there were a number of positive revelations. The large increase in the number of mobile phone subscriptions across Africa is reflected in the 48% of respondents who use mobile phones in their teaching practices.

The role of mobile phones in teaching will be the subject of the eLearning Africa 2012 Debate, on Friday May 25th, 2012.  As the eLearning Africa Conference got underway, participants from across Africa and the rest of the world expressed their excitement at being at eLearning Africa 2012.
