eLearning Africa 2009 - Learn, Share, Network

Conference languages are English and French. Each year, a different African country serves as the venue. The event will be accompanied by an exhibition.

eLearning Africa is delighted to announce that this year's conference, the fourth in the highly successful series of pan-African gatherings, will take place in Senegal. In May 2009, the Continent's largest annual assembly of eLearning and education professionals from Africa and beyond will convene in the capital, Dakar.

Moving to Senegal in 2009, eLearning Africa continues to build and expand a worldwide network for people involved in all aspects of technology-enhanced education and training in Africa, including management and policymaking.

As with the previous conferences, eLearning Africa 2009 will be conducted in both English and French. The eLearning Africa website will keep you up-to-date with the latest information and developments, the themes, the local venue and other components of the event.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.



Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.



You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.



But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.



"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.



Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.



GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.



What is the use of ideas without action?



Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
