Most of the experts and researchers may not have requisite knowledge and experiences of how to conceptualize and manage ICT initiatives in developing countries. I was involved in the management and implementation of a New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) e-Schools Initiative. The Initiative Pilot project was implemented in sixteen African countries over a three-years period. More than 60 private sector companies, civil society organizations and 16 national governments were involved. International bodies like the International Telecommunications Union, Commonwealth of Learning, World Bank and African Development Bank were involved. I learned some lessons that I hope to share with interested individuals and reseachers who are working (intending to work) in this most interesting part of the world. The issues to be discussed are vast from regulatory framework, teacher training, content, connectivity, building partnerships and to a continental (regional) coordination, cooperation and collaboration. I will give more information as you respond indicating specific areas in which you would like to focus on.
