Yesterday saw the official launch of the OU’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) Faculty which KMi joined from 1 August. KMi had a stand at the showcase as part of a celebration of some of the researching and teaching that is undertaken by the faculty.
 
KMi’s stand included some of our projects focussed around the theme ‘Future Technologies for Learning’:
 
OU Analyse - identifying students that are at risk of failure;
 
Blockchain - early experiments in placing Open Learn badges onto a blockchain
 
Stadium Live - embedding interactivity within live webcasts in modules
 
An Augmented Reality application designed to support students studying human biology here at the OU.
 
The KMi led project MK:Smart also had its own stand which highlighted a taster of the project and was shared with KMi’ers and other colleagues in STEM.
 
The event was very busy and both the MK:Smart and KMi stands sparked a lot of interest, including from both our VC and Executive Dean.
