Richard Hall ILT coordinator from De Monfort University payed us a visit in Kings Lynn last week. He's the Project Manager of the MoRSE project which is part of our CAMEL cluster group as assigned by JISC. He was unable to attend the recent CAMEL event hosted by ourselves on the 8th May but he wanted to see the project for himself and talk technology with us.

Richard was particularly interested in the technological solutions that we're developing and the impact on professional development/student learning these will have. We were obviously delighted to have him here and so we gave him the full tour, showed our progress so far and demoed the virtual studio. We also conducted a brief interview with Richard in the virtual environment which we'll post up on the blog soon.

Apart from being eager to hear his thoughts on all of the above, we also had a good discussion on IPR and copyright, Richard pointed us towards this really useful JISC Web 2.0 checklist which DMU have integrated into their general institutional procedure and we are now looking to do the same. On that subject we (project management team) have been talking about who should be driving policy on this subject - the college or the project? It was decided that the project would be the catalyst but we should engage with both the ILT team and IT in order to put guidelines together for feedback from the institutes SMT. Waiting for Toby George head of ILT to return from leave so watch this space.
