E-Learning in Kenya

The Ministry of education has been pursuing e-learning for years now. I have downloaded research and policy documents that they have been preparing from 2005. It is disappointing that they belittle e-learning to just provision of computers to schools.  Whereas that is the start, more is required to have a model e-learning platform.

Schools should be encouraged to adopt the big picture that is e-learning from properly researched outline Strategy of world class standards. E-learning is one thing this Country and the greater East Africa should embrace. When teachers would be able to create digital content for schools, have a shared e-library, have e-exams and display results among other communication using this tool; then Africa will be creating champions who will effectively compete on the world stage.

E-learning should be so inter-twined with the curriculum that the education delivery channels are even accessible on mobile media. They have tried but it is time they up their game.
