The eLearning Africa Virtual Exchanges bring you a new opportunity to network and engage!
eLearning Africa's Virtual Exchange Event Series links global EdTech and digital learning solution providers with decision makers in Africa's education and training sectors. The series, which has separate editions for Primary and Secondary Education, Tertiary Education, Vocational Training, Health Education and Workplace Learning and Development, provides an exclusive online platform where people, ideas, practices and technologies come together.
Offering peer-to-peer engagement with solution providers about how their innovative solutions and designs enable educators and learners to thrive, the eLearning Africa Virtual Exchanges provide a platform both for sharing best practice and showing how EdTech and online learning solutions can respond to the needs of African Tertiary Education institutions at a time when online learning solutions have never been so important.
African Tertiary Education institutions are redefining their offer, transforming their curriculum and finding new ways of delivering education as a result of the unprecedented disruption their institutions face not only due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also in order to stay competitive and ensure the employability of its graduates in the era of 4IR.
Our Francophone Tertiary Education Virtual Exchange offers providers of digital learning and EdTech solutions the chance to meet with decision makers and leaders in the Francophone African Tertiary Education sector. This event follows the successful Anglophone edition in February 2021. It will:
- Enable an exchange between decision makers at Africa's leading institutions and providers of solutions.
- Offer the opportunity to engage in different discussion threads on the current issues faced by African Tertiary Education institutions and the different solutions available to them.
- Allow leading solution providers to showcase and explain their products, services and solutions.
- Offer the possibility to arrange virtual meet-ups and presentations as well as face-to-face meetings and community discussions.
- Offer exhibitors targeted contacts for specific regions and focus areas which will enable them to develop their network.
- Allow African decision makers to get an in depth understanding of the different solutions available for their needs and a better understanding the products, services and solutions available in the market, giving them reliable and first-hand information in order to make the right partnering and purchasing decision for their institutions.
It will also serve as a platform for engagement between the higher education institutions offering them peer-to-peer consultations and discussions on best practices to solve challenges their institutions face.
The eLearning Africa Virtual Exchange platform strengthens relationships and peer-to-peer engagement amongst professionals. Participants with similar interests can find each other and schedule one-on-one meetings, thanks to the platform's special matchmaking feature.
And the platform's unique social feature means that participants can join discussions on the Community Board, create new conversation topics and position themselves as market leaders and reliable, knowledgeable partners
The eLearning Africa Virtual Exchange is a high-level networking opportunity and the connections participants make will prove their value time and time again.
