The Open University of the Netherlands (OUNL) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Cisco Systems, Inc. to "build a string strategic relationship for developing and deploying e-learning environments".

The Memorandum covers four areas:

Cisco will also be evaluating EML and Edubox, the EML 'player' spun off from the OUNL to Perot Systems (more on this story). In return, OUNL will evaluate Cisco’s network equipment.

If Cisco adopt EML in their eLearning activities, such as the Cisco Network Academy, this will be a significant boost for the specification in the commercial sector. Currently, the OUNL and a number of other academic institutions use EML and Edubox.
