3D (three dimensional) eLearning to fulfil educational objectives in Tanzania

AllAfrica Global Media (allAfrica.com) hosts an interesting article taken from the Tanzania Daily News. According to the article, steps have been taken for students and teachers countrywide to have access to Three Dimensional (3D) interactive multimedia experiences by the end of the year.

This became a closer reality when action was taken this week towards supporting the fulfilment of their educational objectives. It was manifested with the formalisation of a partnership between MediaOne Productions (MOP) and the Tanzania Institute of Education (TIE) at the latter's premises in Dar es Salaam on Thursday.

The signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two parties targeted the education sector and aims to prepare the ground for development and delivery of a virtual portal serving enhanced digital learning resources for secondary, vocational and tertiary level students and teachers.

"This partnership brings together our two institutions in a common goal of improving learning outcomes in secondary, vocational and higher learning institutions," TIE Acting Director General Leonard Akwilapo said. "Our experts are very pleased to be part of this innovative effort pioneered by our own Tanzanian multimedia experts."

MOP Managing Director Anaeli Kihunrwa explained that the ultimate goal is to make learning "a pleasant, creative, interactive and collaborative process of discovery" for students and teachers. He also said that this sets a stage for the establishment of a broader longer-term commitment between the two bodies, in a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement.

They have agreed to work together to establish educational needs, content development, as well as feedback collection and analysis. The two parties have agreed that TIE will provide education sector expertise, while MOP develops digital content experiences and builds essential management support systems for sustainable operation of the portal.
