ICT for Learning, Teaching and Research

The use of technology in teaching, research and management is a promising approach to meeting the critical shortage of qualified faculty and academic leaders at African universities. E-learning and connectivity to the Internet have been in our grant making portfolio for several years — supported largely through the Partnership for Higher Education in Africa (PHEA).

Current support for such initiatives is integrated into our next generation strategy and includes projects

(i) To enhance connectivity in universities where we are strengthening postgraduate education programs

(ii) To promote e-learning for advancing discipline or subject-based training through regional networks.
