February 23 – 25, 2021

Our Tertiary Education Virtual Exchange took place from February 22 – 25, 2021 and allowed providers of digital learning and EdTech solutions to meet with decision makers and leaders in the African tertiary education community. This was the first event of its kind for African education. It facilitated a meaningful exchange between peers, partners and clients. It offered the opportunity to engage in different discussion threads on the current issues faced by African Tertiary Education institutions and the different solutions available to them. It allowed the leading solution providers to showcase and explain their products, services and solutions. It offered daily virtual meet-ups and presentations as well as face-to-face meetings and community discussions. It offered the exhibitors targeted contacts for specific regions and focus areas which enabled them to develop their network. It allowed attendees to get an in depth understanding of the different solutions available for their needs and a better understanding the products, services and solutions available in the market, giving them reliable and first-hand information in order to make the right partnering and purchasing decision for their institutions. It also served as a platform for engagement between the higher education institutions offering them peer-to-peer consultations and discussions on best practices to solve challenges their institutions face.
