A national agency for e-learning?

Saturday, April 16th, 2011 | education, ICT in Africa

It has been reported that provincial education departments are to be stripped of their responsibility to procure textbooks for their schools.  The Basic Education Minister of Education, Angie Motshekga,  said:

“We will appoint a national agency to manage the central procurement of teaching-support materials, to deliver on our promise of one textbook per child per subject”.  

 Mothshekga indicated that this agency will be established during the current financial year.

The national minister of Basic Education takes control of textbooks

Should the Minister not likewise establish an agency to establish e-learning in all schools in our country?

The establishment of an e-learning agency would certainly be required if one refers to the document “Creating an Open Opportunity Society for All in the Western Cape”
A ten point plan is set out to achieve the outcomes. Point five refers to the delivery of Quality texts and materials where it states, “… make greater use of technology to deliver a quality curriculum …”
Would this be possible without e-support?
