The Kenyatta University (KU) in Kenya has offered courses via e-Learning since 2005. It represents, according to UNESCO's case studies, the model of an existing institution that added a 'virtual' unit to extend its educational offerings through participation in an international project. See the e-Learning portal at Kenyatta University (Moodle).

Kenyatta was one of the initial six institutions that joined the African Virtual University (AVU). Kenyatta University launched e-Learning as a mode of delivery with an aim of reaching out to the wide clientele of students enrolled in both regular and distance Learning programmes within the Main Campus, Constituent Campuses and Regional Centres both within Kenya and other countries across continents. It also established an e-Learning Coordinating Center (eLCC) in December 2006 to coordinate all e-Learning programmes in the University.
