Editorial: Special Issue - e/merge in Africa
The University of the West Indies, Barbados, West Indies
The Information Society Institute (TISI), South Africa
Welcome to Volume 5, Issue 5, of the International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology (IJEDICT) - another issue published during (and dedicated to) this year’s Open Access Week. This is the second of two special joint issues of IJEDICT on eLearning: the first one focuses on the Caribbean and this one focuses on Africa. The “joining” of these two issues in this way is designed to deepen the flow of academic knowledge between the Caribbean and Africa.
This Special Issue, e/merge in Africa, has been edited by guest editors Tony Carr and Laura Czerniewicz and we thank them for suggesting the issue and for their hard work in putting it together. Tony and Laura have been with IJEDICT as Guest Editors for most of its life and this is the third Special Issue that they have edited on eLearning in Africa.
IJEDICT is managed and published in the Caribbean, but it has always had a special relationship with Africa and in particular with Cape Town in South Africa. One of the Chief Editors was working at Cape Town University of Technology when the journal was first started and is now the Director of TISI, an NGO headquartered in Cape Town. And of course, the Guest Editors of this Special Issue (and the two previous Special Issues on eLearning in Africa) work at the University of Cape Town.
