The early part of this month saw the demonstration of a number of KMi technologies to the Chilean Higher Eduction Council during their international seminar on New Technologies for Teaching, Learning and Management in Higher Education held in Santiago, Chile. KMi was invited to give a presentation because of the high prestige in which the Open University is held in South America and because of our strengths in the themes of the meeting.

Other invited speakers aat the seminar included Jose Joaquin Brunner an ex Chilean Minister now the president of the National Accreditation Commission and Mark Luker the vice president of EDUCAUSE – one of the leaders of the Internet2 project.
The demonstrated KMi projects included:
