AGVA: Virtual Academy

African-German Virtual Academy

Core theme of our centre is the intercontinental communication between Germany and our African Partners. We focus especially on case studies and intercultural projects for students from both continents. In our Autumn and Spring School, as well as by Semesters Abroad (in Germany and our Africa) students get the chance to participate in our German-African programmes.

To enable even more students to be part of this intercultural experience, the African-German Virtual Academy (AGVA) will develop new e-learning modules that cannot only provide the technical content of our international projects, but also allow the students to share cross-border experiences and be part of the exchange.

Actually we focus on ICT4D (Information and Communication Technology for Development) and Doing Business in Africa. First courses will be available in 2016.The students will be able to register for courses online and virtually join the lectures from right where they are.
