The AAU has established a television station (AAU TV) as Africa’s apex higher education television platform to provide quality content for the higher education community in Africa. This medium transmits on YouTube (Association of African Universities); Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AAU67/videos/), on a dedicated website (https://tv.aau.org) and to a limited extent on Twitter (@AautvU) and Instagram (aautvofficial).
AAU is coming up with an innovative approach to draw close to young academics and students in Africa by harnessing Social Media to educate, create awareness and engage the African community electronically through the use of TWITTER, FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE and BLOGGING. This approach aims to generate “noise and excitement” online about higher education in Africa and contribute towards the advocacy role of the AAU.
