Transformation numérique dans l'enseignement à distance en Républiquede Guinée : cas de l'institut Supérieur de Formation à distance (ISFAD)

Abstract : The internet and the web are now a part of everyday life for many people. “Information and communication technologies are not a panacea, […] but they can help improve the lives of everyone on the planet”. This statement by Kofi Annan (2005, cited in ERNWACA, 2006) undoubtedly explains the ever-growing interest in Information and Communication Technologies in several areas of life. In the field of education and particularly that of distance education, many technological devices based on ICT have been implemented in recent years. This is particularly the case in Africa where these systems are supposed to provide solutions to the many challenges facing the education system in general and that of higher education in particular: massification of student numbers, insufficient teaching facilities, lack of qualified teachers and insufficient financial resources (Ndiaye, 2011, p. 19).However, the introduction of a technological device in the educational field is not always an easy task (Missonier, 2008). There are many constraints, especially in Guinea where the context is marked by enormous infrastructural, equipment and training deficits for stakeholders in the use of ICTs. Based on network actor theory (ANT), our study seeks to understand how local specificities participate in the construction of a socio-technical device for distance education. The latter is likely to modify the way in which actors communicate and inform themselves, as well as their teaching and learning practices. This thesis analyzes the process of deploying a socio-technical device for distance education at the Higher Institute for Distance Education - ISFAD (Republic of Guinea). It aims to understand the implication of local specificities in the technology deployment process, as well as in the implementation of the operationalization of the technological device.
