KMi on next generation science education portalsSimon Buckingham Shum, Thursday 02 November 2006 | Annotate
I recently returned from Long Island, New York, where I joined an invitational workshop at the Dolan DNA Learning Center, to explore "New Horizons in Internet Site Development". Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) where DNALC is based, is a private, non-profit basic research and educational institution. Established more than a century ago, CSHL conducts research programmes in cancer, neuroscience, plant genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics and a broad educational mission, and has been home to four Nobel laureates.
I presented the Hypermedia Discourse research programme, and the OU's OpenLearn LabSpace as input to the workshop's focus on new ways to communicate the latest advances in genetic research via educational e-science portals.
