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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
