Yes Fatoumaita. MOOC courses are useful for lifelong learning. We learnt a lot through our course on Regional and continental integration. We learnt a lot through the forum discussions. This is why I believe that through the creation of online communities of practice/learners, lifelong learning could be promoted. At present, we are benefitting a lot through this online forum discussion. We are not learning through the formal structures of a programme of study but through discussion within an online community. Africans could benefit a lot through the creation of such online communities which will encourage collaborative learning and strengthen lifelong learning.
