Shut the polys & return to National Service

"Shut the polys & return to National Service" was a heckle during the question & answer session at the end of the keynote speech by Professor Tim O'shea on New Topologies for learning.

He had presented some history of elearning initiatives and what appeared to be an advertorial for Edinburgh University. One of his concluding and most controversial comments was that the traditional universities (ie Russel Group) were best placed to deliver elearning because of their resources and history - although he admitted they were not good at student support. This really seemed to annoy many of the delegates from post 92 universities, FE and other sectors.
