For those interested in infrastructure for e-learning, this extensive article provides a great deal of information about China’s extensive involvement in building telecommunications infrastructure in Africa.

Apart from donations of equipment, China does not appear to be playing a direct role yet in e-learning in Africa.

The article is very balanced looking at the cons as well as the pros of China’s involvement. It also has an extensive list of references for those wishing to follow up on this topic.
