DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN OF A LOCALIZED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS EDUCATION FOR SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA
Published: 22 Sep 2016
Abstract: All over the world, an increasing number of businesses run enterprise systems (ES) to optimize their workflows, leading to a rise in demand for employees with the required software-specific skills. The Enterprise Systems Education For Africa (ESEFA) project was initiated to establish ES education in study programs at higher education institutions in sub-Saharan Africa. An ES education environment was developed featuring an Africa-specific, modular curriculum which was expected to facilitate a positive learning experience. This paper presents the underlying pedagogical premises of the ESEFA education environment as well as the derived localized curriculum and draws some preliminary conclusions regarding the success of the localization.
