eLearning Africa 2018 In Rwanda

The 13th edition of eLearning Africa, the International Conference on ICT for Development, Education and Training, will take place on September 26-28, 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda. The conference, which is being jointly organized by ICWE GmbH and the Rwanda Convention Bureau under the patronage of the Rwandan Government, usually attracts well over 1,000 participants from all over the world. They are not only teachers, academics and learning experts, but political leaders, policymakers, investors, technologists, business leaders and entrepreneurs too. The conference is also the occasion for an annual roundtable meeting of African education and technology ministers.

eLearning Africa 2018 will take place from 26 to 28 September in Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali, which has gained a reputation for its ICT-based initiatives in a variety of sectors. So great is its apparent enthusiasm for new technological solutions that some observers have referred to it as the “Innovation City of Africa”.

In addition to its technological prowess, Kigali is also one of Africa’s most attractive cities—eLearning Africa participants will be able to take advantage of its bustling streets, ridges, valleys, and lush hillsides, not to mention Rwanda’s world-renowned Gorilla trekking tours, only a short journey away.

“It is wonderful that Rwanda is now setting a real example for other countries in technology-assisted learning and hosting a conference whose theme is Uniting Africa”, says conference organizer, Rebecca Stromeyer. “I am confident that eLearning Africa 2018 in Rwanda will be the biggest and most exciting eLA yet”.

Under the overall theme of "Uniting Africa", conference participants will discuss how the benefits of technology can be shared and help to improve education across Africa, making a reality of the African Union’s 2063 Vision of a "transformed continent". Over 12 consecutive years, eLearning Africa has hosted 16,228 participants from 100+ different countries around the world, with over 85% coming from the African continent. More than 3,300 speakers have addressed the conference about every aspect of technology-enhanced education and skills development.
