The Massively Open On Air Courses (MOOAC): Contextualizing MOOCs in Africa

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Education in Africa faces numerous challenges: infrastructure, affordances, teacher shortages and distance. MOOCs can be deployed to address these issues. But few African students actually attend MOOCs. Access to the internet is still very limited (about 9 percent) in Africa. So this presentation looks like an adaptation of MOOCs - open On Air Courses, delivering instruction over the radio. The presentation itself is about 20 minutes, with the remaining 35 minutes devoted to discussion. See more from the MOOCs in Africa video series in this playlist.
