In a world where higher education institutions are seeking opportunities to offer courses to a global market of ‘online learners,’ a commitment to the physical habitat of education might seem obsolete or anachronistic. Yet many educators speak for the uncanny quality of physical presence; that being physically face to face with students has a singular, irreducible pedagogical power. This raises a question: is the interest in online education really pedagogical? Although I argue that the move to e-learning is founded primarily on economic rather than pedagogical concerns, I want to get beyond the dichotomy that sees e-learning either as a panacea for educational limitations, or the erosion of the substantive educational encounter. I will argue for an ambivalent philosophy of technology that can make us more attentive to the appropriate place of technology in education.
