The focus on keeping the insitution working during the current virus appears to focus a lot on the institutional side of the business, the teaching and not so much on the learning. Do we take for granted that students all have access to a laptop, pc, tablet form home? Many only use a phone at home and rely on being in the building for thier main technology and not to mention for other reasons such as keeping warm. I suppose we could let them use the insitutional technologies (e.g. pool laptops) but there is also a big issue there as they are usually configured to work only within a network running strict policies to ensure they remain secure, taking them out of the network will open up a whole new bag of issues. Is there a danger that this virus will exacerbate the digital divide?
