After over 7 years at the OU, Alex Little is leaving to serve in Ethiopia on a VSO programme. Alex has been a member of KMi's team working on the OU-wide OpenLearn project since 2006, and most recently, worked on the new SocialLearn project. He developed the MSG social presence tool while working with Marc Eisenstadt on OpenLearn, and then joined the Cohere Web 2.0 knowledge mapping team for SocialLearn.
