The African, cross-sector conference on technology supported learning and training, eLearning Africa 2018, is less than one month away! Do not miss the opportunity to join some of the world’s leading practitioners, decision makers and innovators in Kigali, Rwanda to develop new skills, exchange best practices and lay the foundations of an innovative future for education and training.

At eLearning Africa you will find thousands of innovative solutions to shape the future of learning and a host of experts, advice and resources to make them happen! 

Join our pan-African audience from the Business, Education, Research, Government and Public Sectors.

Under the theme “Uniting Africa,” we will go beyond basics to tackle sophisticated challenges.

Look at our preview of renowned keynote speakers, who will be joining us this year in Kigali. Amongst them are Prof Nii Quaynor, father of the African Internet; Dr Mamphela Ramphele, author, activist, medical doctor, academic and businesswoman; Dr Martin Dougiamas, founder of Moodle; Maximillian Bankole Jarrett, Senior Special Adviser of Africa Progress Group; Roger Clark, Connected Classrooms Expert; Elliott Maisie, global eLearning advocate and renowned workplace learning expert and many more.

The latest eLearning Africa 2018 sessions include 12 simultaneous tracks covering a variety of fields where ICTs are helping develop the continent:

    A dedicated track for universities, addressing how the use of technologies can have the greatest impact on tertiary education, how universities are managing their digital transitions, which are the new opportunities with mobile technologies for teachers and students in higher education, how Africa is contributing to worldwide research and the prospect for MOOCs in Africa. The Academia Track will also offer diverse presentations on different topics that are currently major challenges for African universities.

    If you want to learn more about how to empower specific sectors and target groups, don’t miss the Empowerment Track. It will offer practical initiatives to empower African women, people with various impairments, displaced learners living in refugee camps, as well as two interactive breakout sessions that will discuss what young people need to become the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

    Get ready to learn how big corporations in Africa, such as Volkswagen, Heineken, Airtel and the KCB Bank, are using innovative tools to make learning efficient and attractive for employees. They will share their experience and show how they enhance their employees’performance across Africa. This session will be part of a full track devoted to the use of ICTs and digital tools to enhance learning and development in the workplace.

    A full track is devoted to teachers’ experiences with ICT. There will be an exciting discussion on whether educators are ready to integrate ICTs in their teaching. In order to make the teacher the centre of the educational system, how can they find initiatives to communicate amongst them for their professional growth? How can teachers improve their digital literacy to be ahead of their students? How can they implement the use of social networks in their educational methods? Those and other experiences such as e-assessment methods will be addressed in these diverse sessions.

    For the first time, a dedicated track for the health sector. Focused on healthcare workers, different sessions will analyse how eLearning can reduce the costs of training, which mobile initiatives contribute to a better performance in the health sector, which tools are reshaping the health sector in Africa, how healthcare education can benefit from multi-country partnerships with a blended learning approach and last but not least, a highly interesting debate on how ICTs can fight against hunger and malnutrition.

    An inspiring interview with Martin Dougiamas, Founder of Moodle, who will hold an open conversation with directors of learning at African universities, highlighting the concrete uses and adaptations of Moodle to be applied to individual learning contexts. Come prepared with your questions!

    And last but not least don’t miss the annual eLearning Africa debate, which promises to be as explosive as ever with experts Clarisse Iribagiza and Donald Clark pitted against Dr Bitange Ndemo and Maximilian Bankole Jarrett to discuss the motion “This House believes Africa has nothing to fear from a 'fourth industrial revolution' and should seize the opportunity it represents”.
