 South Africa needs to urgently increase the rate of teacher training for
digital education programmes if e-learning is to succeed, says an industry

“At a national level, only 26% of teachers have basic ICT skills and only
7% have intermediate skills in using ICTs for teaching and learning,
according to the department of basic education,” Micheal Goodman, group
content manager at Via Afrika told Fin24.

*Digital education is a national priority in SA as the country heads toward
a “paperless” classroom.*
