Event name[edit]

eLearning Africa 2016, Cairo

Participant connections[edit]

I was supposed to give a presentation on easy ways to edit Wikipedia as an e-learing process, but I was told I am only registered as a guest after I landed in Cairo. A presentation on virtual reality presentation (SPL02) was impressive, and the post-event report was quite informative about the situation of elearing in Africa.

Talked to people, gathered as many notes and documentation I could about elaerning projects coming to Africa. This partially inspired my following presentation about Wikipedia Zero in Morocco at Wikimania 2016.
