African Virtual University (AVU) says it has launched the AVU Multinational Project II funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB), at Egerton University, Kenya to aid e-Learning in Africa.
This follows the successful completion of the Policy Harmonization and Curriculum Conceptualization Workshop which was held in Nairobi in July. At the workshop, the Vice Chancellors of 26 African Universities developed an implementation framework for the Multinational Project II and agreed to work with the AVU to collaboratively implement the project.
The AVU Multinational project II aim is to strengthen the AVU and its network of institutions to deliver and manage quality ICT integrated education and training opportunities.
The project will see AVU provide equipment and expertise to upgrade an eLearning Centre at Egerton University and work with the University to offer an online degree program in Applied Computer Science.
