I have put a comment in about the UK e-university. The Guardian wrote it up as a problem but I don't think they looked at why UK academics have not gone further with this. My opinion is that there could have been more attention some time ago.
See 'part time job in ICT'
UK universities world-class?
Meanwhile there is some comment in a topic on 'fear and web culture'. This started with why digital / web animation is marginal for festivals. There is an Australian view on visual culture. There also seems to be quite a lot of Australian interest in e-learning. Not sure why the UK could not be similar.
