See the $100,000 state-of-the-art centre launched in Tanzania to support digital learning

The Centre of Competence in Digital Education (C-CoDE) is hosted by the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) and was established within the framework of the Excellence in Africa initiative, a collaboration between Mohamed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) of Morocco and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) of Switzerland.


The $100,000 facility is equipped with a professional studio complete with camera setups, lighting, internet access, and soundproof materials, enabling live streaming and recording of educational content.

C-CoDE is expected to play a vital role in promoting digital literacy and enhancing learners’ capacity in the region.


A total of 44 applications from 19 countries were submitted, but it was NM-AIST’s proposal which sailed through and was declared as one among six universities to benefit from the programme.

The facility becomes the fifth Centre of Excellence to be hosted by NM-AIST, after the Centre for Research Advancement, Teaching Excellence and Sustainability in Food and Nutrition Security (CREATES-FNS), Centre of Excellence for ICT in East Africa (CENIT@EA), Data-Driven Innovation incubation Centre (DDI Incubation Centre) and Water Infrastructure and Sustainable Energy Futures (WISE-Futures).
