Topical issues

  • Should higher education institutions have the right to determine what software applications learners should use for their studies?
  • Data generated by learners belongs to the learners, therefore should they have the right to access their data (for example forum discussion contributions) even after the course has completed?
  • Should higher education institutions reserve the right to ban disruptive learners from their learning platforms?
  • Where legally permissible, should learners have the right to access all course materials without the need to register a password?
  • Should higher education institutions have the right to limit the time required for completing a course?
  • Others?
