Elearning Report Africa

“Notably, a few growth areas in the eLearning sector were rarely mentioned. Very little reference was made to the growth of Open Education Resources (OER) in Africa and the potential this may hold for significantly expanding access to learning material and content.”“References to the benefits of assistive technologies for learners with disabilities in Africa and the value of cloud computing were also very sparse.”And there is no mention of “virtual school”, “online school” and only one for “IT in schools”, no mentions of “virtual” in the context of schools, but 55 mentions of “school”
