eLearning Africa 2008

This week, members of the University of Michigan Health Sciences Open Educational Resources (U-M OER) initiative will attend the 3rd annual eLearning Africa conference in Accra, Ghana. eLearning Africa is the largest assembly for eLearning and distance education professionals in Africa.

As part of today’s preconference events, the visiting U-M OER team hosted a meeting with our U-M Health OER partners, including representatives from universities in Ghana, South Africa and Nigeria as well as members of key funding groups. Participants discussed topics ranging from the dScribe publishing model and delivery platform options of Health OER materials to the co-creation of new educational materials and suggestions for future projects.

This meeting made possible with contributions from the Hewlett Foundation, the Soros Open Society Institute, the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research, and the University of Michigan.
