Global student presentations - a unique source of knowledge about online students

This is a translation by Nicolas Lemarchand of an interview that was written by Torhild Slåtto and published in NVL

In the NKI learning environment, there are over 12,500 students, at least as many as any of the largest four State colleges in Norway. Students have been wandering around in virtual hallways for decades - now they don't need to be lonely anymore. They have a face on the internal network. Furthermore - they can choose who gets access to their profile: just themselves and NKI, fellow students, or all Internet-users. Until now more than 1,600 published their profiles on the net. And this figure is growing day by day, becoming a vast source of knowledge about who are these invisible students?
