Train-the-TrainerESEFA has reached a new stage in the development and implementation process of its projected ES teaching and learning platform for sub-Saharan Africa. From 13 January to 17 January 2014 the Information Systems Department of the University of Cape Town (UCT) has been the backdrop for an introductory course on teaching Enterprise Systems fundamentals hosted by Stefan Weidner from the Otto-von-Guericke University (OvGU) Magdeburg.

The training course attended by lecturers from the UCT and the University of Pretoria (UP) was initiated to impart the expertise needed to ensure a high quality and demand-based ES training for students in Africa. With regard to the forthcoming training function of the lecturers technical fundamentals of Enterprise Systems as well as didactical aspects were jointly discussed. Major emphasis was put on getting familiar with the SAP system landscape, GBI training and the curriculum design. Further key issues on the agenda were the ease of modification and modularization of specific contents as well as further research efforts necessary to continuously evaluate and thus improve the future course design.
