Selected Results – eLearning/TSL Team
Currently, very few organizations can utilize the services of an in-house eLearning/TSL team and largely have to outsource eLearning/TSL activities.
Less than 40% have their own eLearning/TSL team

Selected Survey Results – Purposes / Target Audiences
When asked which kind of support would assist organizations most in deploying eLearning/TSL activities (or additional eLearning/TSL activities), most of them would need
technical support
strategic/legal support
Survey-Summary I
The survey results show that there is a large number of activities in the field of environmental education on all education levels (primary through tertiary and informal) throughout Africa.
The results show further that a large number of the organizations offering such activities have a Environmental Education Strategy in place.
The results show that there are only minor differences between francophone and anglophone regions, apart from currently carried out eLearning/TSL activities. Here, the francophone regions are trailing behind.

Survey-Summary II
Most organizations do not have their own eLearning/TSL teams and require the outsourcing of activities.
To further support the development and deployment of eLearning/TSL activities, African organizations require further assistance in the field of technology, strategy and programme implementation.
Most eLearning/TSL activities are funded internally. For sustainable eLearning/TSL measures, African organizations for environmental training would need more sustainable funding sources.
