Abstract: This paper explores how NetTel@Africa, a network for capacity building has addressed access, acceptance and delivery barriers in crafting an e-learning Masters degree programme. Building on network principles, one key success factor is to link open source software development, the KEWL project at the University of Western Cape, with digital content development and collaborative learning initiatives. How the Network survives will depend on whether tradition bound learners see the benefits of e-learning.
