    1. I respect the work that all of us do in the open — faculty, students, staff — and want to see that work plugged as deeply into the university as the textbook industry used to be.

      Amen.

    2. while we like to scoff at all the mucky-muck bureaucracy around training, budgets, policy and messaging, it’s precisely that stuff that prevents your dream initiative of today morphing into rotting infrastructure of tomorrow.

    1. broadband access,

      Here's a scenario. In Alaska we're trying to expand access to higher ed by enrolling more and more students from rural areas in e-learning programs.

      I'm probably jumping the gun on this but consider the way that even the unfiltered internet is essentially filtered by bias introduced by human influenced algorithms, commercialism/advertising, etc. Check out the incredible work of Sofia U Noble on the algorithms of oppresion if you're not familiar. https://safiyaunoble.com/

      Or consider the bias of predictive search suggestions.
