The 2nd AVU eLearning Day is scheduled to take place in Lusaka, Zambia in May 2010. This event will be used to raise public awareness about AVU programs and services in order to increase AVU's enrollment, membership, donor support and funding, as well as to sensitize the community about the change of focus and management at AVU.
The main objective of AVU eLearning Day 2010 will be to promote eLearning in Africa. Presentations will focus on defining what eLearning is and how it works. The AVU will showcase success stories from several eLearning initiatives, including AVU's Teacher Education Program; the Training of Trainers program; AVU's deployment of ODeL centers; Quality Assurance; the Virtual Consortium project and the new AVU Virtual Campus for Development & Peace.

History of AVU eLearning Day
In December 2007, the AVU and the organizers of e-Learning Africa signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation, to collaboratively build awareness and capacities across the continent, foster strong continental and inter-continental networks, support the emerging e-Learning Communities of Practice (CoP), and stimulate research and development cooperation. In order to fulfill its obligation of the MoU, the AVU participated in e-Learning Africa to showcase current activities through presentations and in doing so create further links for partnerships.
The first AVU eLearning Day was launched in May 2009 in Dakar, Senegal in conjunction with the e-Learning Africa 2009 conference, which was the 4th International Conference on ICT for Education and Training. Its main objective was to support and reinforce the growing pan-African e-Learning community by providing an opportunity for African professionals and stakeholders to benchmark, learn, share and network, thus strengthening the continent's many and varied educational technology initiatives and projects.
