I got the call for papers for WWW2006 today. One of the tracks for next year is Developing Regions, and I’m hoping that our School will do a paper on our involvement with the African Virtual University.
This is an amazing project where we are helping a number of African Universities to deliver Computer Science Diploma and Bachelor programs by providing courseware, training, and support. The first students of these programs graduated this year. Eventually (after a four year partnership) the African unis will run the programs independently.
