- OKN, a African-based Open Knowledge Network catalysing the creation and exchange of local content is now active in six African countries: Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Senegal, Uganda and Zimbabwe. In Kenya, Zimbabwe, Senegal and Mali the project is expanding beyond the initial organisations to form national networks working with many other partners. The new software, Open Enrich, has been released and it will also be used by UNESCO’s Community Multimedia Centre network, increasing the pool of shared content. A study tour to India focusing on content creation and revenue generation will happen in late February.
