PLENK2010 A Matter of Authority

#Plenk2010  In reviewing the readings for today's Elluminate session, I ran across this statement:

In all our work, we support openness, sustainable technology and making innovative choices. In this spirit of progression, JISC publications will only be available in digital formats in the future. Printed copies of Effective Assessment in a Digital Age can be ordered free until end of October 2010.
  My son, who is attempting to discuss politics with his fellow gamers, is running up against the issue of authority.  If he suggests that they watch a particular video on the 'Net, they reject his information because it isn't accompanied by a bibliography of references. 
  While Universities may be taking a look at e-education, they must struggle with the issue of authority as well as assessment.
