As part of a European university tour, Mme Liu Ying, Director of Distance Education and Continuing Education at the Chinese Ministry of Education once again requested to spend some time in KMi. After her last visit here in 2006 she was keen to see what project developments had taken place and to introduce a number of senior Chinese academics, who were accompanying her on her tour, to the KMi team. Dr Elia Tomadaki was able to demonstrate further development of FlashMeeting and place it in the context of use as a distance learning tool with the integrated FlashBoard for presentation style, as well as outline the benefit to tutorial group work through the integration with OpenLearn. Dr John Domingue gave an overview of the work of the Semantic Web Services Team, fielding questions about the application time frame of the technologies that can make sense of the exponentially growing services offered by web hosted providers. Dr Dawei Song not only demonstrated the work he is involved in with the Multimedia team but also translated for everyone. KMi were happy to provide translation for the entire OU visit, as Dr Yuangui Lei accompanied the Chinese delegation for their tour of presentations from different faculties.
