Session Abstract

NREN development and collaborative teaching and learning efforts in Africa often face political,
technological, and financial challenges (eg. lack of government support, high technology costs, limited availability of technical resources, unpredictable REN infrastructure, etc.). This session will
provide updates on NREN development in Africa, highlight some of these specific challenges, and look at new ways the community is working together to address them.
