New Media Systems

Our New Media Systems research theme aims to show how new media devices, standards, architectures and concepts can change the nature of learning. Our work involves the development of short life-cycle working prototypes of innovative technologies or concepts that we believe will influence the future of open learning within a 3-5 year time scale. Each new media concept is built into a working prototype of how the innovation may change a target community.

The working prototypes are all available (in some form) from this website. Our prototypes themselves are not designed solely for traditional Open Learning, but include a remit to show how that innovation can and will change learning at all levels and in all forms; in education, at work and play.
