Inner City Gazette - - News - By Staff Re­porter [email protected]­

As part of the City Li­braries drive to pro­mote its e-learn­ing ser­vices, the City of Joburg Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices is run­ning an e-learn­ing es­say writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Par­tic­i­pants need to write an English es­say (600 to 800 max­i­mum words) about how e-learn­ing can change their lives. They also need to demon­strate their un­der­stand­ing of e-learn­ing ser­vices in li­braries.

City of Jo­han­nes­burg’s pub­lic li­braries are a hub of ed­u­ca­tion, giv­ing res­i­dents ac­cess to books, mag­a­zines and au­dio ma­te­ri­als to as­sist res­i­dents in their stud­ies, ca­reer, busi­ness or per­sonal devel­op­ment.

The City in­tro­duced e-learn­ing ser­vices in li­braries to en­sure the in­clu­sion of res­i­dents into the dig­i­tal so­ci­ety. E-learn­ing ser­vices can be ac­cessed in the li­brary or re­motely us­ing the in­ter­net. The City of Joburg li­braries pro­vide the fol­low­ing e-learn­ing ser­vices:

• Free Wi-Fi;

• E-learn­ing class­rooms equipped with com­put­ers, where users can ac­cess on­line cour­ses such as cod­ing; and

• Ac­cess to e-re­sources such as on­line aca­demic sites, on­line news­pa­pers and ar­ti­cles.
