eLearning Africa 2015 – Enriching Tomorrow

Technology is changing education. African economies are growing and eLearning Africa offers a unique vantage point from which to see and understand the transformation of a continent.

1,389 people from 68 countries joined us in May at the Headquarters of the African Union in Addis Ababa for this year's conference.

Political leaders, entrepreneurs and educators were part of a unique discussion - about how to design, implement, provide, finance, support, certify and manage learning in Africa in a new age of rapid change. 

249 inspiring conference speakers showed how they are using technology to create new solutions. Best practice, new ideas and lasting connections were at the heart of over 70 pre-conference events and sessions.

eLearning Africa 2014 was a great discovery for me in terms of thinking, understanding and reasoning capabilities. I left the conference as an ICT expert, full of innovation, tools, and information on usage of eLearning tools. I do believe that if all professionals came out and embraced the idea and principle of e-learning, Africa's confidence will be built and the frontiers will really be opened.

I thank the sponsors and EAST who have enabled me to attend this wonderful, fun-filled, empowering and network-dominant conference.”

Gabriel S. Konayuma, Ministry of Science, Technology & Vocational Training, Zambia

“I was most impressed with the organisation of the eLearning Africa Conference, the hospitality of the Namibian government and people, and the level of knowledge and interest from the delegates. With conferences like this, it is clear to see that Africa is rising!”

“The conference gave me a new perspective on how ICT can help greatly in the development and educational sectors in Liberia after the 14 years of civil war.

From the sessions and networking in Windhoek, I believe that eLearning could become an integral part of Liberia's virgin ICT and Education sectors.”

Luther D. Jeke, iLab Liberia, Liberia

Speaker, “Technology Innovation Hubs in Africa: Creating Opportunities for Peer Learning and Knowledge Exchange”, 2013

“[eLearning Africa] was so empowering and asserting and gave me access to various technological tools, especially through the exhibition and the various presentations … I benefitted a lot from eLearning Africa, not only as a chairperson, but as a participant too.

It was my first experience and I walked away avery rich person in terms of ICT-tools usageinformation and innovation.”

Menesia Muinjo, Namibian Broadcasting Corporation, Namibia

Chairperson, 2013

“The success of a conference is determined both during and after the event, but most importantly when the ideas shared and skills gained are put into practice. [eLearning Africa] was a great learning experience for me to challenge my thinking and at the same time discover new tools to improve my work.

Best practices have already been transferred. In fact, my colleagues at work and I will be visiting one of the universities that shared experiences of how they had successfully implemented courses that were taught completely online.”
