A Baseline Study on Technology-Enabled Learning in the African and Mediterranean Countries of the Commonwealth: Report
The study reports the findings of a desk review derived from Internet-based searches on the status of technology-enabled learning (TEL) in the African and Mediterranean countries of the Commonwealth in June 2015. Wherever possible, practitioners and policy makers from each country were consulted through informal discussions, either via email or face to face during the process of preparation of the report. While it provides an illustrative snapshot of the status of TEL, it cannot claim to be a comprehensive review of investments and progress in TEL at institutional, national and regional levels as the findings are based largely from information gathered through Internet searches. Each country reports present the findings systematically covering: basic information about the country, national policies, systems and programmes, ICT access and use, major nation and institutional initiatives on use of ICTs in education, open educational resources, and prospects and challenges. A detailed list of initiatives and policies are listed in an appendix with links to the sources.
