Abstract

Abstract—In present day’s world of globalisation, institutionsare not only fostering the formation of graduates ableto operate in one location or country but desires to producethe global engineer equipped with the right knowledge andskills able to operate in any part of the world. A lot of onlineresources have been developed and are made freely availableon the World Wide Web (web). Some of these havebeen developed by individuals, institutions and businessorganisations with an aim to engage learners and users andin aid of helping them improve their productivity and use ofthese tools either for personal or workplace benefit. Thispaper examines some of the resources for sharing andcollaboration in engineering education investigating theprospect and challenges and influence of online technologies.We examine the influence of culture and impact oflanguages with a focus on Africa. In recognition of thechallenges and potential for positive contribution to improvedlearning, economy and life in general, we concludethat it is paramount that opportunities created by moderntechnologies be explored and exploited through sharing andcollaboration for enhanced engineering education provisionin Africa.
