    The prompt questions provided by the course were around visualisations of education, learning and teaching in these films. The second week of the E-learning and Digital Cultures course still centres on utopian and dystopian accounts of technology. Where last week looked at past accounts of our existing relationship with technology, the films this week explore ideas of the future of digital culture. The first two films are video adverts setting out visions from Corning and Microsoft of how they see their products evolving and how daily life will change accordingly. Day Made of Glass 2.
