Hi all.

Hope that you've all gotten back home safely!

I'm going to be teaching an MA-level course on Digital
Divide/Inequality next term.

Anyone taught this sort of course before and willing to send me a
syllabus? I'd appreciate it. And of course I'd be happy to compile
some things and send them back to you.
