In this last eLearning Africa newsletter of the year, we would like to take the occasion of the season to reflect on our achievements and to appreciate the new experiences, connections and skills we have acquired. We hope that for many of you eLearning Africa 2018 was a source for exciting learning experiences, new knowledge and competencies, and for new contacts.

We are very pleased to share here our Post-Conference Report “eLearning Africa 2018 in Review”.

We also hope that you will also enjoy reading about some of the highlights from this year’s conference and other compelling stories. We would like to introduce you to a real star at eLearning Africa 2018, our Plenary Debate speaker Clarisse Iribagiza, who is a young and brilliant Rwandan female entrepreneur and who tells us about her incredible journey to being one of Africa’s top AI entrepreneurs. Furthermore, please find perspectives from some of our audience members on their personal conference experience, in Sheila Jagannatha’s blog piece and Wycliffe Omanya’s chronicle on his participation this year. Learn from Lyle and Muhire’s opinion and experiences on flexible eLearning versus high-cost face to face training. We are delighted to support eLearning For Kids, and to introduce you to what they are doing for K1- K12 students. And last but not least, we are proud to share with you an article by Isaac Kasana, the CEO of Research and Education Network for Uganda on the state of education and eLearning in Uganda.

We are also very pleased to announce next year’s eLearning Africa Conference & Exhibition which will take place in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from October 23 – 25, 2019, under the overall theme “The Keys to the Future: Learnability and Employability”.

Wishing you continued inspiration and success in the new year as well as best wishes for the season!
