Finally I am in Morogoro. Further away from the hustle and bustle of the Tanzanian economic engine, Dar Es Salaam. Before I left Dar I attended the E-Learning Conference at Mlimani city. A very nice set-up for people interested in e-learning. Most of the discussions were centered around the theme “how e learning is going to shape education delivery in the Africa of tomorrow?.”
Participants represented the entire African continent and beyond. The place was packed and there was a lot of enthusiasm from the different stake-holders.
As usual, many of the African conference participants were absent. They took this paid opportunity to come to Dar Es salaam to indulge themselves and buying gifts and touring the city. I saw many of them spending at Mlimani City Mall and not attending the sessions. Another, donor’s money wasted.
