  25. 25. “If you had asked me that question two years ago I would have balked. [Using a VC robot] would be exciting and challenging. It’s about what we’re doing, not about the technology. I’d love to see that in action. Again I see that as superior to what we’ve experienced [with BlueJeans], the fact that they can turn the camera and talk. That more replicates what we’re trying do in the room.”
  26. 26. “I think in that case where I have one student coming in or two or three; a small number of students relative to the number of students in my class this would be great. Perfect actually, because you could go out in the hall and work in a group.”
  27. 27. “The robot to me is an interesting idea. Part of my thinking is thinking about who are we, so it’s ontological but what essence or what physicality is different to me. It wouldn’t bother me, if I had 10 of those it still wouldn’t bother me, it’s just another way of being.”
  28. 28. “I can just teach normally to them and to them the same way as this face-to-face student. I don’t see that being an issue. ” “Wonderful. I have students all the time who are sick who skype in. They have to find a friend to skype them in, but that would be great.” “I would love to try it as a student. I would love to try it as a teacher. As long as I have no responsibility for moving their screens around.”
