Association of African Universities (AAU), Accra
The transformation of higher education must be coupled with the effective application of ICTs in teaching, learning, research and innovation, as well as the administration of the academic institutions. The Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) is keen to promote and assist member universities in taking advantage of the emerging ICTs in the delivery of higher education.
Consequently, application of ICT and networking is one of the strategic objectives that the IUCEA is presently pursuing in order to provide an effective strategic support to member universities in their teaching, research and public service roles.
Already, the IUCEA has initiated a number of projects and activities aimed at enhancing the capacity of universities in the region in order to support their core functions.
These include an ICT survey conducted in 2002, an ongoing collaborative ICT research project called VarsityNet, holding a regional symposium on ICT and library education in East Africa, and partnering with a number of European countries in a project to establish a European-African multimedia information resource network with a hub at the IUCEA.
However, more still needs to be done in order to ensure that universities exploit the full potential provided by ICTs.
