Achieving the Millennium Development Goals in Africa: Harnessing E-Learning Potentials

Joseph Wilson, Nuhu D Gapsiso


It is increasingly been accepted by various stakeholders that the realization of development targets in the developing countries depends more, among other measures, on knowledge. One of the centerpieces of international aid efforts in the new millennium has been the effort to achieve eight millennium developments goals (MDGs) for developing countries by the year 2015. Achieving the MDGs paradigm will require both knowledge and skills. e-learning is gaining popularity and bringing knowledge to our doorposts. Can it deliver in respect of achieving the 8 Millennium Development Goals?  This paper explores how e-learning is situated in the drive towards realization of MDGs in the African continent. Literature studies have been conducted to determine the potentials and possibilities inherent in e-learning as a tool for MDGs realization in Africa. The success of e-learning largely depends on access, affordability of technological resources and willingness of the people.
