This method will periodically connect to a message broker using PHP::AMQP, and collect messages from the LSE Student Information System. Students are added and removed from courses (SITS Modules) and groups (CMIS classes). It will create Moodle accounts if these do not already exist.
In this course we will analyse functionally how resistance, expressed in public opinion as the interplay of mass media, public perceptions and activism, impact on technological trajectories. New technology is neither good nor bad, nor is it neutral. It is a negotiated project, a growing web of engineers, lawyers, regulators, users etc, in a dynamic configuration of ideas, materials, affiliations and dissent. The discussions explore issues leading toward a social psychology of objectification.
