This chapter concerns itself with reconsidering what the main underlying problems are with digital technology and higher education. Despite the brilliant and sharp minds of many of the people working in higher education, as the whole universities are not the most brilliant or sharpest of organizations. There are a number of critical issues and entrenched themes that underpin the narrow and pernicious uses of digital technology in higher education that need identifying and isolating. Yet the major outcomes of the privileging of market organization within digital education are the increased diversion of education into a commodity state. Digital education should be seen as significant carrier and creator of power relations within higher education. The reading of digital higher education in terms of power, control and self-regulation continues onto the crucial issue of class and digital technology. The importance of class is overlooked in the individualized and meritocracized discourses that have captured popular, political and academic imaginations from the 1990s onwards.
