Yesterday saw the celebration of 20 years since the establishment of the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) at the Open University. The celebration was attended by guests and former colleagues from a range of academic institutions to celebrate this milestone for KMi.
The event was opened by the new Vice Chancellor of the Open University, Peter Horrocks and special guests included some of KMi’s founders: Marc Eisenstadt, Tom Vincent and Kitty Chisholm. Guest speakers reminisced over the achievements of the lab over the years and looked to the future. The talks concluded with a panel discussion, chaired by John Domingue KMi’s Director-designate, on the future of Knowledge Media.
This was followed by an exhibition of KMi’s current research projects, where the FORGE iBook and learning widgets were demonstrated by Alexander Mikroyannidis.
