Ivory Coast’s Struggle To Implement e-Education


Although Ivory Coast is working towards the implementation of e-education throughout the nation, there seems to be a gap between what occurs within the ministries of education, and what takes place in academic environments.

It has been noted that ICTs have become common within the Ministry of National and Technical Education (MENET) as well as, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MESRS). Both ministries are equipped with internet connections and websites through which students can sign up for exams, or have access to lists such as exam results and scholarship winners.

Within actual academic environments (such as high schools and universities) however, ICTs are still largely uncommon. Many of these establishments lack a working internet connection and a significant number of computers. Consequently, students do not benefit from ICT training and the establishments remain without a digital identity.
