ICTs in Education and E-learning

BY ADMIN IN FUNCTIONS

In the latest Zimbabwe academic calendar, a bold move was initiated which brought to the fore the inaugural use of digital technology in all education sectors from nursery schools to higher tertiary learning institutions. In a mighty way a new dawn of the adoption of e-learning on a broader level therefore just established itself in Zimbabwe.

The evolvement of e-learning has mostly been in institutions of higher learning where universities have established learning portals which their students access online to download or view lecture notes, class notices, fees statements, link up with lecturers and in more developed cases, collaborate on school work among themselves.

However, it will be crucial to highlight that in Zimbabwe, e-learning is no longer only limited to tertiary institutions, but even Early Childhood Development pupils are now exposed to the use of computers at nursery school. E-Learning has opened a whole industry and created opportunities for business among entrepreneurs and technology enthusiasts.

The Background

Computer Society of Zimbabwe (CSZ) is an Internationally recognized professional body for Zimbabwe's community of ICT professionals.

The Computer Society of Zimbabwe was founded in 1974 with one objective, that of benefiting the Computer Industry and all people who work in it. The Society's aims were to educate the general public on the use and development of Electronic Data Processing, today more widely known as Information Technology. It set itself up to bring people using computers together, to set up standards within the industry and to promote computers and their use in scientific and commercial environments.The developments in the Information Technology Industry over the last two decades have meant that the Computer Society of Zimbabwe has had to examine and update its position in the light of these developments.
