“Lovely to see you here on this forum” comments at 4.31.

It is language like this why we did all those IDEL readings on the body in cyberspace, metaphors and location and whatnot. Whilst you say they cannot see you earlier in the video you. At 3.11 you talk about going “there” to the Standford MOOC, yet in physical terms you did not. It is hard to leave our bodies behind. It creeps back in our language and how we think about things. Hence the Stanford staff writing things like “lovely to see you”.

By using a don like jacket and locating the video in a book lined study you give yourself an air of academic authority which, in turn, gives what you are saying legitimacy by proxy. I suspect this is a parody of the way elite universities use their academic authority to give xMOOCs legitimacy in the minds of potential students/users/customers (delete as appropriate according to your mindset).
