Survey of e-Learning in Africa: based on a questionnaire survey of people on the e-Learning Africa database in 2007

Unwin, Tim

Abstract:

The report summarises information about the status of e-Learning in Africa based on 316 responses to a questionnaire circulated in 2007 to people on the e-Learning Africa database.  This represents approximately 4 percent of people on the database, and reflects those who are already most committed to the use of e-learning within Africa.  The respondents to the survey were from 42 different African countries who provided a wide variety of information about their e-learning practices.  The results reflect three main conclusions namely that 1) different e-learning practices in Africa do exist, 2) e-learning is still in its infancy across the continent and 3) there is much enthusiasm amongst respondents for developing the potential of e-learning in their countries.  The author concludes that the challenge that remains to be addressed is to indentify the optimal e-learning solutions for different groups of people in African countries with varying levels of access to infrastructure and levels of training.
