British Association of Open Learning VisitPeter Scott, Wednesday 06 February 2002 | Annotate
The British Association of Open Learning held their annual general meeting at the Open University today and in concert with this arranged a day conference for their members here. Around 50 BAOL delegates attended OL sessions including those by: Mary Thorpe on the versioning of course materials; David Grugeon on the Open University's present and future; Jim Flood on the corporate university perspective and how Corous is opening up new markets. The BAOL visitors were from a range of diverse organizations: from Consignia to the Inland Revinue; and from Pergamon Flexible Learning to Knowledge Pool. Here in KMi they heard from Peter Scott about the difference that technology makes in education. Peter demonstrated examples of technology making a difference in higher education, school level education and even in healthcare and mainstream business contexts where work and learning are the same thing!
