KMi were happy to show support for this important opposition by appearing as part of the Channel 4 news story on the ELQ proposals. In brief, the govt. wants to remove all funding for students studying for a degree at the same level as one they already hold. For the OU this represents a significant number of our students and a serious potential loss of income. KMi staff were happy to support the general OU opposition to this proposal by appearing in a Channel 4 news bulletin on the subject. As a key centre for the development of learning technologies and the community relationships of learners, KMi share the concerns of the university Vice Chancellor that the removal of funding for a large proportion of our target audience may have serious implications for the development of learning techniques. For more information - watch the Channel 4 bulletin in full.
