The Government of Mauritius will host this year’s eLearning Africa event, which will take place in Port Louis, the nation’s capital, from 27 to 29 September.
“The theme of this year’s conference – ‘Learning in Context’ – is a very important one for African educators, organizers said, adding “In recent years, eLearning Africa has been attended by over 1,500 participants from more than 80 different countries. It is accompanied by a ministerial roundtable, which is attended by ministers of Education, Science, Technology, Information and Communications from all over Africa and beyond.”
“This year will mark the twelfth anniversary of eLearning Africa. The conference has been remarkably successful. It doesn’t just bring people from all over Africa together to discuss, share experience and learn. It also brings experts, entrepreneurs and investors in education from all over the world to Africa. In doing so, it has helped to create a host of new partnerships, to bring about some major investment deals and to inform political decision-making in all sorts of ways.” Rebecca Stromeyer, CEO of ICWE, event co-organisers, said in a statement.
“I am delighted that this year the event will take place in Mauritius. The Government of Mauritius is committed to using technology to open up a range of new opportunities in education. It is investing heavily in technology-assisted learning and training. Mauritius is a wealthy and stable country with highly developed tourism and financial sectors. The Government is keen to encourage innovation and promote tech start-ups. So, it’s an exciting time to be coming to this beautiful African island and I’m sure that everyone who attends eLearning Africa 2017 will really profit from the experience.” She continued.
