E-Learning Research Group

E-Learning Research Group
The eLearning research group deals with research projects, workshops, training and consultancy services within Makerere University. These are related to use of technology to enhance learning, teaching and assessment practices. The eLearning research group is based in Makerere University School of Computing and Informatics Technology (CIT). However its membership is made up of persons from a variety of backgrounds such as academicians, researchers, staff developers, Internet librarians, software developers and Web designers.

The eLearning research group having its roots in CIT gives it an advantage to streamline and encourage use of technology for learning in the educational system of Uganda. The group aims at having strong collaboration with other institutions, national and international organizations and professional networks that are striving for the use of technology in learning. Members of the eLearning research group have embarked on developing an eLearning strategy that will encourage university staff to further use eLearning during knowledge construction.

The E-learning group members are significantly undertaking research at PhD level in the different e-learning areas that directly impact on education within developing countries such as Uganda. The active research areas include mobile learning, web accessibility, content provision through multi-media, constructivist e-learning approaches to LMS development, multi-agents for e-learning and pedagogical integration of ICT in education.
