We had a very interesting visit last week – it was great to meet some new colleagues from Linkoping University and they were very interested and impressed with our setup here at Essex. Included in our demonstration was:

  • Our Listen Again lecture capture service
  • Moodle and EVS (Electronic Voting Systems)
  • The new teaching spaces at The Forum in Southend, which was a talk given to us by Matt Softly in Southend over our remote lecture screens
  • FASer and the MEFE project
  • The Limehouse and the Orangery
  • Some robotic research from CSEE
  • An overview of the University strategy on technology enhanced learning, given by Richard Murphy and Jane Wright
  • The student view of elearning at Essex from James Potter

It’s amazing how much variety we have here that you don’t realise until you amalgamate it all into one day!

Anyway, a great time was had by all and I think the Swedish visitors definitely got what they needed out of the day. We got thank yous from the VC, who we met at the visit, and from the Leadership Foundation who had organised it. Looks like we left a good impression!
