Are We the Product? Redux: Notes from the Future

In March of 2020, Brenna Clarke Gray and Brian Lamb of TRU presented a talk at Open Ed Week where they endeavoured to “explore the present state of digital learning and discuss ways to better understand and respond to these [data privacy] practices.” A handful of days later, campus closed and everyone moved to fully remote instruction.
