A short introduction in Norwegian : NKI er 100 år i 2010
I 1910 ble Noréns Korrespondens-Institut etablert i Malmö i Sverige av Hilbert Norén. Han var en nær medarbeider av Hans Svensson Hermod som sto bak Hermods i Malmö, som startet sine første korrespondansekurs i 1893.
I 1926 ble flere svenske brevskoler slått sammen under navnet NKI-skolan
I 1959 ble det etablert et eget Norgeskontor.
I 1966 ble den svenske NKI-skolan lagt ned og dermed opphørte NKIs tilknytning til Sverige.

… the web2.0 and PLE services may have the same fundamental impact on online education
The most interesting characteristics of Web 2.0 is the development of social networks that are hugely successful since the users produce, share and refine information of mutual interest and benefit for all the community members .
Resulted in much discussion in the teachers’ online forum
A few teachers voiced strong criticism, doubts and reservations
The average response time dropped month by month during the Fall of 2004. In October it showed 3,97 days, in November 3,06 days and in December 2,76 days. Since then, the average response time has been less than 3 days except during summer holidays. In 2008 we introduced an automatic e-mail reminder to the tutors who had one ore more assignments waiting for 7 days or more.

Presented with permission from www.nki.no/pp/LexidhSolstad I now try to get a diploma showing that I can write. Have worked as a TV journalist … but now the Fibromyalgia pains restrains me so much that I have to work from bed in the future.
Translated by Google from www.nki.no/pp/ViviHurtley I was accepted as a psychology student at the university, but had no interpreter, so I chose to study online to combine family life and education. I need a sign language interpreter to follow traditional lectures, since I am deaf. So it is ideal with NKI, since I do not need an interpreter.
