The place of E-learning in Africa's institutions of higher learning

Nafukho, Frederick

Abstract:
The paper seeks to accomplish four objectives. The first is to examine the need for e-learning in Africa’s institutions of higher learning. The second is to discuss the policy, institutional, pedagogical, copyright, and quality assurance issues that need to be addressed. The third is to critically examine the advantages and disadvantages of e-learning in African universities. The fourth is to provide a practical partnership model for design and successful delivery of e-learning programmes. To achieve these objectives a critical analysis of relevant literature and case studies was conducted. The literature search included computerized search of accessible and available material on e-learning in Africa and world over, manual search of existing literature, and communication with key subject matter experts to locate published and unpublished studies. The results of the study show that e-learning has a future in Africa’s universities and that there is need to build e-learning programmes based on genuine partnerships from other successful partners within and without Africa.
