Abstract

If we assume that necessity really is the mother of invention, then the problems of delivery that arose when the Covid-19 virus crisis hit UK higher education represented a golden opportunity for advocates of digital technology in education to showcase its benefits. As universities rushed to move their provision online, there was an inbuilt assumption that students and staff had both the skills and the confidence to ensure that the experience of the student was not compromised by this change. That confidence, however, was not always well placed, with the reality being somewhat different.
