Read the full news release from eLearning Africa.

Google Inc. unveiled The Literacy Project in conjunction with the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and Litcam, a literacy campaign organized by Frankfurt Book Fair officials. It is a Web site dedicated to literacy, pulling together its books, video, mapping and blogging services to help teachers and educational organizations share reading resources.

The UNESCO Institute for Education in Hamburg was recently renamed and rechartered as the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning. The new name more accurately reflects the Institute's long-standing focus on adult learning as well as out-of-school and non-formal education in
the perspective of lifelong learning.
