Today Paul Hogan presented his work on Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality to visiting delegates from the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources in Malawi.

Dr Joshua Valeta - Open and Distance Learning Coordinator and Dr Tasokwa Vida Musa Kakota - Senior Lecturer in Mathematics and Head of Basic Sciences Department were visiting the University primarily to see how The Open University delivers open and distance learning.  

A visit to KMI gave the opportunity to demonstrate how this technology is being used from initial concepts to the current development of the SK299 Human Biology mobile and web app due to be released to students in October 2017.

Both Dr Valeta and Dr Kakota could see the potential use of this technology and showed interest in the tools used to develop it.
