Opening Frontiers To The Future

eLearning Africa 2014 Call For Proposals Now Open

Many African countries are undergoing an economic boom, with ICTs seen as a major tool supporting growth. While Internet penetration rates remain low, innovative technologies are helping to ensure connectivity for more Africans than ever before.
The buoyancy in the African eLearning market is yet another sign that the potential of this diverse Continent is already being realised. There are, however, major challenges ahead. Inflated trade tariffs and restrictive border controls between many African countries, for example, are stifling intra-African trade and collaboration, frequently presenting an all-too-physical barrier to continued, sustainable growth.
Out of this environment of challenge and opportunity, eLearning Africa has announced a Call for Proposals, inviting participants from across Africa and the world to submit their ideas, innovations and research, under the main theme of “Opening Frontiers to the Future”.
