Today the Open University New Technology for Student Services group visited KMi for a full day technology updating session. They spent the day exploring the potential for new technologies in the support of Open University students in the Centre for New Media's "masterclass" area. In the morning session they exlpored applications of video - looking at layers and MPEG-4 issues. They then worked in teams to shoot a segment about their work, produce it into a simple DV clip and upload that to a web server. In the afternoon they explored some instant messaging, communication and "presence" applications. They then created a Rostra news service for their group, and included their new video clips in short news story items.
