On October 25, I attended UNESCO’s Unitwin Seminar held by the Korea National Open University(KNOU) and talked about the use of open source. Through this project, KNOU has been interacting with universities in Mongolia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Nepal. In particular, the participating universities seem to be interested in the topic of distance education, which is the strength of KNOU. Hanoi Open University(HNOU) from Vietnam and Tribhuvan University from Nepal which introduced Nepal Open University as a would-be partner for the current project.
In particular, I enjoyed the discussion with HONO on effective Internet on-line assessment. So I told them that if a test applicant decided to cheat, there’s no way to control it remotely, and said testing with gamification in the course of learning is more meaningful than summative testing at the end one time. In any case, it’s the safest and sure way to run a supervised test. I have added a new PPT page for this seminar. It would be nice to share it.
