eLearning Africa 2016 – Making Vision Reality


eLearning Africa is the key networking event for ICT enhanced development, education and training in Africa. As the largest conference of its kind, the three-day event is a must for those wanting to develop multinational, cross-industry partnerships and contacts whilst sharing knowledge and learning new skills.

Taking place in Cairo, Egypt, the 11th eLearning Africa brought together decision makers and practitioners from across the education, business and public sectors to debate, share and take action on all themes surrounding access, openness, skills, pedagogy, sustainable development, best practice and more.

An overwhelming number of 1,045 delegates from 72 countries joined us in May in Cairo for this year's conference. 204 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 65 conference events and sessions.
