→The eLearning Africa 2019 Report

The Essential Guide to EdTech, Digital Technology, and Learning and Development in Africa

The eLearning Africa Report 2019 is a leading source of news, information, and analysis about ICT, EdTech, digital technology, learning and development.

As African leaders seek to make a reality of the African Union's vision of a ‘transformed continent’ by 2063, setting their sights on the creation of the largest single market in the world and, as businesses assess the implications of a ‘fourth industrial revolution,’ the eLearning Africa Report looks at the state of education, training, development and technology at this moment of unparalleled change.


With contributions from experts, practitioners, advisers, entrepreneurs and even students and artists, it provides a fascinating insight into how technology assisted learning and training are leading change and development throughout Africa. Ranging across the education and training spectrum, it provides an insight into how a host of developments, from improved connectivity, blockchain, and open education resources to distributed learning, gamification and greater gender equality are likely to affect learning outcomes in Africa.
