WikiEducator just received the MANeLA award at the just ended e-Learning Africa conference on 30th May, 2008. Our work on the UEW site played a key role in this award.
About forty (40) UEW lecturers were trained to develop online educational content from March 3 - 5, 2008 at the Winneba Open Digital Village. Almost every department in UEW was represented. The three (3) day workshop concentrated on the upload of educational content including courses outlines, assignments, publications, etc.
The workshop wase facilitated by Mr. Kafui Amenu Prebbie (UEW) and Mr. Nicholas Kimolo (FLOSS4Edu, Kenya). They were supported by two pedagogical designers within the project team, Prof. Jonas Akpanglo-Nartey and Mr. Yaw Sakyi-Baidoo.
