eLearning Africa was founded in 2005 and over the past years,  has hosted 19,242 participants from 100+ countries around the world, with over 75% coming from the African continent. More than 4,000 speakers have addressed the conference about every aspect of digital learning, training and skills development.

The conference is held in English and French and includes core dialogues, discovery demos, knowledge exchange sessions, knowledge factories, panel discussions, panel talks, plenary sessions, pre-conference events and boardroom discussions on specific topics and informal networking opportunities in which practitioners share their experiences, ideas, new information and perspectives.

The conference includes an Exhibition Area where leading international eLearning manufacturers, suppliers and service providers present their latest products and services. Workshops conducted by leading experts and practitioners precede the event and offer attendees a unique opportunity to acquire new skills and learn about the latest developments.

eLearning Africa is the venue for the Ministerial Round Table, an annual meeting of African ICT and Education ministers, who take part in a day-long discussion of key issues affecting education, training, skills and technology before the official opening of the main conference.
