Multimedia-based electronic learning has become a tool used to provide access to education for multiple segments of the population, which otherwise would have little to no access to it. While eLearning is integrated into curricula early in the digital revolution, in many countries, it is just beginning to address the opportunities and challenges web-based learning may bring.

Digitalization and eLearning for the educational system; How can the Government, School owners, Schools, Colleges and Universities benefit?

This meeting is for people working in governmental positions both central and in the districts, school owners, schools leaders, teachers and staff from colleges and universities. The meeting is scheduled for three hours. 

The development of multimedia and ICT technologies have created opportunities for traditional or classroom-based learning notions to be developed into eLearning notions. The paradigm of eLearning is as effective and has numerous benefits as compared to classroom-based learning. Educational institutions could use online eLearning methodologies for the education of their staff without having to spend for their travel elsewhere. The universities could reach out to a wider audience globally and implement these technologies, therefore offering a remarkable development chance.
