The Minister for Education, Eugene Mutimura, has encouraged students and the public in general to embrace e-learning opportunities to evolve better in the digital era, which he said is increasingly transforming the world.

He was speaking at the eLearning Africa Conference in Kigali, bringing together different stakeholders in the education sector from different countries.

It brought together high level policy makers, decision makers, business and government officials from across the continent to look at how technology can break barriers, enabling Africans to share knowledge, learn and prepare for the future together.

“Online learning most especially appeals to strike a balance between family, work and education; this can be their best option for it offers a flexible way to follow lessons from anywhere and anytime. What matters is for them to organise themselves effectively and choose the right programme,” he said.

He pledged the government’s support to ensure that existing challenges, mainly internet connectivity and its cost, are tackled.

On the other hand, the conference organiser and the founder of eLearning Africa, Rebecca Stromeyer, said that Africa is full of opportunity and promise. However, in order to seize the opportunity, Africans must come together and ensure that the whole continent is fit for the future.
