On Line Africa CyberAc@demy provides multiple media education and skills training for the Information Age. Our goal is to facilitate the development of professional and community media workers needed to supply global and domestic markets for quality, in-depth and balanced visual, audio and written information about the new African world.

In partnership with LINKS Multimedia Foundation, Tv SIBUKA , SIBUKA-FM and our network of participating global universities, training centers, media houses and other organizations, we provide recent media training program graduates and advanced students with the on-the-job training that is increasingly required for entry and mid-level media positions.

Study Photography, Graphic Design and Digital Storytelling in Africa. Register Now for 2014.

Our experiential digital media training programs include international field studies for ACADEMIC CREDIT from the American University in Cairo, Journalism and Mass Communication Department and the Open University of Tanzania, Journalism and Media Studies Department. The 2013 Field Study programs took place in the United Arab Emirates and focused on archival literacy. The Summer 2012 program "Converging Media: Communicating Across Borders with Words, Pictures and Sounds" explored the social and environmental landscapes of East Africa as local and foreign students generated on-line news and information projects.

These writing and visual communication courses were taught by Professors Robert Jones, II (Distinguished Prof., Visual Communication Practice) and Doris Jones (Sr. Writing Instructor) of the American University in Cairo who formerly taught at the University of Johannesburg, Howard University, University of Maryland and Syracuse University. Their media credits include National Geographic Magazine, Chicago Tribune, LIFE Magazine, Time Magazine, Paris Match Magazine, Washington Post, New York Times, WGBH-TV, ABC-TV, CBS-Films, Public Broadcasting Service and others. Credits earned are fully transferable to participating accredited universities.

On Line Africa CyberAc@demy courseware for teaching photography, video and graphics has been used at the University of Maryland, Trinity University of Washington, D.C., South Africa’s Vista University and the American University in Cairo since 1998.

With our academic partners, we are planning to launch Africa’s first on-line university credit courses in photography and photojournalism through a consortium of African, Arabian and American universities. Instruction will be in English, Arabic, Kiswahili, Portuguese and French. The courses and dynamic virtual textbooks are designed to allow other language versions to be produced quickly using our "remixable" courseware. Plans will soon be announced for a MBA degree program in Media Management and a certificate program in Health Communication in partnership with our collaborating universities in Africa and North America.
