A local company at Namibia and a German company signed an agreement for the first e-Learning centre for Namibian teachers. The system will ensure that Namibia’s educators have access to up-to-date educational content and training by facilitating online training programmes.
The Ministry of Education, Namibia announced the provision of N$19 million for the use of Information and Communication Technologies in schools. This isn’t just to put computers in schools rather this is to deploy ICT’s in teacher training colleges, schools and vocational training centers; to develop curricula and educational content; to train teachers and to provide technical support throughout the country. After consultations the two companies agreed to work together to promote e-Skills training to support the World Summit on the Information Society’s call to build a people-centered, inclusive, development-oriented information society.
