Sharp upturn in e-learning revenues

Self-paced electronic learning revenues in Africa may hit US$512.7 million by 2016, according to the latest forecast. The continent is said to be experiencing a sharp upturn, and e-Learning Africa forum says it is no longer just an end user of new products from the Western world and others, writes Stanley Opara for Punch.

The engines driving the growth of e-learning were also powering industry and innovation as well as supporting African businesses, it said. The forum added: “With fewer than 1,000 days left to the target date for the Millennium Development Goals, such African-born initiatives are also helping to accelerate worldwide action against poverty.”

Currently, a record number of proposals had been submitted and more attendees are expected than ever before at the e-Learning Africa 2013 forum, which the organisers said was an effect of the technology boom.
