Unprecedented times! A phrase that we have all become well accustomed to in this season. Frankly speaking mankind could not have envisaged life in this new normal as we call it. New normal it is and with that inevitably comes the demand for new ways of living, new ways of doing business, new ways of communication and new ways of education delivery. Yes, that’s right, new ways of delivering education!
We all wish that the pandemic will come to an end and its sting touch us no more so that we can go back to ‘normal life’. However, normal as we knew it may never come back and history reckons that such global events like this pandemic always pushes humanity forward and as such one area that we must and need to invest in is eLearning or rather virtual ways of delivering education. In fact, the correct term is Learning Management System (LMS). If you have never heard of LMS get ready to hear a lot about this in the days and months ahead.
The 1st world has long embraced LMSs in their education system not as a contingency plan but as an equally important method of education delivery system in the same manner as all other orthodox methods that we are all too familiar with. While one can argue that there are factors in the African education space that hinder this revolution and evolution of learning, we cannot afford to sit back and do nothing about.
Thankfully, Botswana will soon tell a different story as we have all since learnt about the emergency of e-Frika Academy. Yes, the first of its kind and yes, its championed by Batswana! e-frika Academy goes live this month, locally developed (#ProudlyBW).
