  • At this colloquium Dr. Virginie Aimard from the United Nations University (UNU) gave an introduction to e-learning, with practical exercises on how to access the web-based learning management system Moodle. Dr. Aimard gave an overview about the educational potential of online content and material in general for the university of Yaoundé I. This Humboldt Colloquium presented a great opportunity to explore the feasibility and interest of the University in developing their competence in producing and delivering e-learning content. The fact that several professors are collaborating on equal level within the same university clearly demonstrates the motivation and dedication of the interdisciplinary group.
  • In September 2008 Prof. Dr. Mama Foupouagnigni was invited as a guest scholar to the United Nations University Vice Rectorate in Europe (UNU-ViE) in Bonn to elaborate a project proposal for the deployment of e-learning at the University of Yaoundé I. With the help and expertise of Dr. Aimard, he developed a project plan for the introduction of e-learning at UY1. During his stay at UNU in Bonn for two months, several contacts were established to German as well as to African universities. Amongst them a strong collaboration has been initiated with the Institute for Information Systems for Production and Operations Management at the University of Duisburg-Essen which is a leading institute for e-learning research and development that hosts many international projects in the field of e-learning and capacity building. September-October 2008: UNU-ViE invited Prof. Foupouagnigni to stay as a visiting professor for two months to gain expertise by working with UNU-ViE e-learning expert, elaborate the plan and meet with different German university experts and donors (Humboldt Foundation, DAAD, private companies).
