Digital Education Hub

Flensburg, 05.07.2019: We’re happy to be among the chosen universities for DAAD’s call for proposal on ‘International Mobility and Cooperation through Digitalisation’.

We are qualified for the second phase with the idea to establish an African-German Digital Education Hub, as a model to demonstrate on how universities can collaborate and position themselves in a digital ecosystem.

We are enthusiastic to work on the final proposal with our partners at Durban University of Technology (South Africa), Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (Kenya), Namibia University of Science and Technology (Namibia), and Hochschule Wismar (Germany). Fingers crossed!

Trend 7/7: Do you know the effects of digital innovations?

Berlin, 10.04.2019: If everything is connected with everything, then everything can be haked? Is AI used to control or to enable people? Why is Coca Cola interested in environmental data collected by sensors on sites? Did you know that Uber contributed to slow down traffic by 50%? Do we need parking in the future? For sure, we need new standards and answers in our continous changing world.

Trend 5/7: Run about talents

Berlin, 10.04.2019: German companies need to look for skilled people around the world and big internet companies are missing in Europe apart from spotify. Peter Altmaier said: “Start-ups in Israel like to do more business in Europe as they think more like Europeans”. We at CBAT are wondering, how we could attract African Start-ups to help Europe? Do you have any ideas?

E-Learning Africa 2018

Kigali, 26.09.2018: Let’s talk about E-Learning, let’s talk about Africa! Africa’s largest conference and exhibition on technology supported learning, training and skills development was held from 26th – 28th of September in Kigali, Rwanda. Debates and knowledge exchange sessions talked about how technology is driving transformation in education and workplace, digital literacy and digital divide, and how innovation meets strategies to improve employability. Kerstin Schultheiss got the change to interact with professionals and shared success factors and lessons learned from our African-German Virtual Academy (AGVA) during a poster presentation session.

Africa is on a cutting-edge in mobile innovations with fast growing economies and the world’s youngest population. Therefore, be curious how “E-Learning made in Africa” will drive the future in education.
