Today, the lab had a joint visit from Shell EP Learning and Development (SIEP) and the University of Twente in the Netherlands. On a previous visit, the new head of SIEP Adam Lomas had suggested that we all really needed to get together! Prof. Dr. Betty Collis is the Shell Professor of Networked Learning and knows the OU well; but had never before come to KMi. Prof Collis is the driving force behind the Twente Teletop networked learning environment and has extensive track record in educational technology research. Andy Cooke is the head of the Shell Open University (same name, no relation) development team in SIEP. He has also been to the campus before, as Shell have been working closely with COROUS on learning systems within his company, and latterly in the development of the Teletop system. Since 1998 he has also been a part-time Associate Lecturer with the UK Open University on the 'Managing Knowledge' and 'Project Management' supported distance learning courses. He is also a contributor to the development of the UK e-Universities new course on 'Learning in the Connected Economy'.
