About the Report:
Building on the key findings of The eLearning Africa 2012 Report, the 2013 Report will analyse the integration of learning technologies in Africa, explore the development of locally-produced digital content and examine the challenges and opportunities that are shaping Africa’s eLearning sector.

Launched by Benin’s Minister of Communication and ICT Max Ahouêkê at the eLearning Africa 2012 conference, The eLearning Africa 2012 Report found that the main factor constraining the African eLearning sector is lack of bandwidth, the most important change agent is the government, and the main motivation for using ICT is to improve the quality of teaching.

The eLearning Africa 2013 Report will measure progress in these areas and engage with new ways of approaching Africa’s systemic developmental challenges and priorities for the post-2015 development agenda.
