E-Learning Progress in Africa

Submitted by Khalil Abubakar on Thu, 09/18/2014 - 10:44pm.

Entrepreneurs from Africa have founded Funda, an e-learning platform. They have partnered with various universities across the continent to provide online courses for their students. They provide content development services to partner institutions and the course offerings are usually at a cheap price. Due to lack of electricity and technological resources in other parts of Africa, most of the work is with institutions in South Africa. Funda’s long-term goal is to be the top e-course provider in Africa. They also believe e-learning’s convenience and capability to match anyone’s schedule will improve education in Africa when access to technology becomes readily available for the majority.
