Benin-CIA_WFB_MapeLearningworld News from Benin

The vision of “eLearning Benin” was born in a group of young professionals working for the World Bank Group where some are from Benin. The basic ideas of introducing online learning in Benin’s higher education is to solve the problem with increased amount of student enrolment, while the number of professors are decreasing. Overcrowded lecture halls with lack of equipment and financial resources are challenges the higher education sector in Benin faces every day. The project includes around 20 resources for distance-learning programs offered by prestigious universities located around the world. Smartphones and computers are very common among Benin youth today. Now students will have a better chance to use their devices to improve their education and in the next step increase their prospects on the labour market. Source: World Bank Group
