Some final reflections as the enquiry into UKeU draws to a close. UKeU, which was intended to be a world class online learning university wrapped up instead as a milti m,illion pound loss. Derek Morrison, who worked on the project and followed the enquiry with interest, observes that key decisions were made before the team started working on the project, decisions that were possibly political in motivation, that UKeU became the platform (which in itself cost millions of pounds). Trying to salvage something out of UKeU, adminsitrators are looking at using or selling the platform - but as Morrison asks, if it's so valuable, why hasn't anyone stepped forward to buy it?
