An educational system known as electronic learning, or e-learning, uses digital technology to offer training courses and other instructional materials. It can be referred to as a network-enabled knowledge and skill transfer that provides flexibility to accommodate many recipients at various times. It uses electronic devices to access online resources and educational information, including computers, tablets, and smartphones. It is becoming more and more popular in African nations as the demand for high-quality education is rising and traditional classroom instruction cannot keep up. Due to the underfunding of their educational system and the remote locations of their educational institutions, there is a significant shortage of highly trained teachers. This encourages students from a variety of backgrounds to use e-learning techniques, including K–12, post–secondary, corporate, and government learning, among others.
