Yesterday saw the first public viewing of a number of web-based services, constructed collaboratively by KMI and IET's International Centre for Distance Learning, which will form a significant part of the University for Industry's National Observatory. By capturing, contextualising and semantically indexing best practice within EU funded ADAPT projects the observatory will provide a highly valuable resource for the UfI.
The web services demonstrated in London build on top of a number of KMI technologies including: KMI Planet, Enrich and our own knowledge modelling language. The OU will receive a grant of £100K to create the observatory as part of the Marchmont project.
