Kurzfassung in Englisch

What do learners and educators gain or lose from e-learning? Learning and teaching is a process which has to be flexible and also structured to lead to needed competences to give future graduates the expertise they need to meet up with the demands of the labour market. Based on the experience of e-learners and e-teachers in different fields and from different parts of the world, it becomes apparent that e-learning is a good opportunity for progress, enhances knowledge and makes easy access to education for all. This could be the opportunity, most especially for developing countries (based on the general need for education and capacity-building in developing countries for students, in-service personnel, researchers, etc) to make education available for all. However, there are still a lot of administrative and technical limitations which have to be overcome to make e-learning more effective, especially in Africa.

An e-learning need and opportunities assessment was carried out for each of the African partner institutions in the AFOLM project (University of Ghana, Legon in Ghana, Federal University of Technology, Akure in Nigeria, and the University of Dschang in Cameroon) in order to propose the most effective way to make e-learning a valuable experience to many. In addition, the awareness of the partner universities to Open Education Resources was explored. The results of the survey indicated that internet-based distance education or e-learning is a promising way of improving education and training in agriculture and forestry but that the level of awareness on new developments in ICT or internet based learning in agriculture and forestry education is still very low.
