The 8th annual eLearning Africa conference is to be held in Windhoek, Namibia, from May 29 to 31, with Microsoft as the leading sponsor.
The event will discuss how to enhance education in Africa using technology, incorporating Microsoft’s vision “Anytime Anywhere Learning”.
“We are very pleased to be part of this event, now in its eighth year, and to see the impact it is having across the continent,” said Mark East, Microsoft’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia education industry group general manager.
East added the impact e-learning can have in Africa cannot be underestimated, with the company committed to ensuring students across the continent are getting access to the technology which can help them shape their own future.
“It is not simply about putting computers into classrooms, but how these computers can be integrated into the curriculum, especially in Africa,” Microsoft said.
Tradition, change, and innovation are the focus for this year’s conference, with local innovation in education at the centre of interest.
