The 3rd International Conference on ICT for Development, Education and Training will take place from May 28 to 30, 2008 in Accra, Ghana under the Patronage of the Ghanaian Minister for Education, Science and Sports, the Hon. Prof. Dominic K. Fobih.

eLearning Africa has established itself as the largest and most comprehensive capacity-development event for technology-enhanced education and training on the Continent. Initiated in May 2006 in Addis Ababa under the Patronage of the Ethiopian Minister for Capacity Development, H.E. Ato Tefera Waluwa, the pioneer event attracted more than 830 participants and 250 expert speakers.

The 2nd eLearning Africa was hosted by the Kenyan Ministry of Education in Nairobi in May 2007. It attracted 1406 participants, with nearly 80% coming from Africa. The conference programme featured the input of 308 speakers and chairpersons from 55 countries and offered 69 presentation sessions and 17 pre-conference events. Major international and African corporations, as well as development agencies and foundations supported the conference.
