Which when it all works, enables us to have sequences of meetings concerning ongoing and future projects, in Beijing, Xian and Dunhuang. It enables us to do three days of classroom teaching seminars, install, set up and teach on a new digitization platform for the Dunhuang Academy. Finally have the teams break out and begin a relatively huge multi year digitization project that will be independent of our group, beyond consultation and quality checks as requested. These efforts require the coordination of large teams at Northwestern, our suppliers, and in the Academy here in Dunhuang.
