MC Online at African Education Week 2012

Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” These compelling words certainly resonated with the theme of this year’s African Education Week: Empowerment for all through quality education. One of the largest education conferences and exhibitions in Africa, this 6th annual convention and learning expo highlighted new ideas and methods to improve the quality of education and prepare students for the corporate world. The event was attended by more than 6000 education professionals including Ministers of Education in Africa, Vice Chancellors and Deans of educational institutions as well as tertiary students amongst others.

Held from 2 – 4 July 2012, the conference took place at the Sandton International Convention Centre in Johannesburg and featured Marshall Cavendish Online (MC Online) alongside 60 other exhibitors. MC Online’s participation in this illustrious conference was indicative of the extensive global reach of its pedagogically superior digital products.

In South Africa itself, MC Online’s online portal and digital contents have been extremely well-received by many independent schools in Johannesburg, Durban and East London.
