Ethiopia, a country located in the Horn of Africa with a population of around 94 million, lacks the provision of higher education due to political, social and economic aspects. In the 1960’s, access to education in Ethiopia was very low; only less than one-fifth (20%) of the school age population were enrolled for education.There were high regional and gender gaps in gross enrollment rates.In the last 15 years, Ethiopia has shown remarkable growth in the expansion of education at all levels (primary, secondary and tertiary levels). Currently, the gross enrollment rate in primary schools has reached over 95%. Enrollment in secondary schools and in universities and colleges has also increased significantly.
Unlike many other countries, Distance Learning Programs would be a necessity in Ethiopia as it would be convenient for the students from rural areas to get educated. Distance & Online Programs have the potential to reach a large number of students who would otherwise be excluded from educational opportunities.The Government of Ethiopia supports distance learning in a major Way.
With the evolution of Online Learning Platforms, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of students who pursue distance education. Especially in Ethiopia, more than SEVEN Hundred thousand (700,000)students get educated via these programs today. This demand is expected to grow and will reach about onemillion (1 Million) by the year 2016/17.
