eLA eLearning Africa 2006 - The conference programme is online

05.04.2006


The conference programme for eLearning Africa 2006 can be viewed online at www.elearning-africa.com. The first international conference dedicated to information and communication technologies (ICT) for development, education and training in Africa takes place from 24 to 26 May in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.



The extensive agenda includes the deployment of eLearning in schools, universities, administration and government; the development of digital educational materials; eLearning in medicine, health service and HIV/AIDS education; as well as ICT in development cooperation. Contributions by important local networks and initiatives, such as SchoolNet Africa, the AVU African Virtual University, Riverbend Learning (South Africa) and the World Agroforestry Center (Kenya) will enrich the programme. Numerous African universities will present their ICT and eLearning projects, including the Gaston Berger University in Senegal, the Yaoundé University in Cameroon, Nigeria’s Obafemi Awolowo University as well as universities from Mozambique, South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.

Major organisations from the world of international development will also be present, among them the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN), the World Health Organization (WHO), the German development agency GTZ, the African Development Bank and the NEPAD e-Africa commission.


Running parallel to the conference programme is the African eLearning Tools and Services Village, where applications and services developed specifically for Africa will be introduced. These include open source learning environments, collaborative learning tools, and learning content. Participants can gain hands-on experience with the programmes and products and discuss them with the developers and providers.

Wednesday, May 24 is dedicated exclusively to Workshops. The complete conference programme as well as the full list of Workshops can be found at www.elearning-africa.com.

eLearning Africa 2006 is a new conference organised by ICWE GmbH and Hoffmann & Reif that focuses on ICT for development, education and training in Africa. The event will establish and link a network of decision makers from governments and administrations with universities, schools, governmental and private training providers, industry, and important partners in development cooperation. Each year a different African country will serve as the venue.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
