The number and scale of the apparently unexamined assumptions in this comment gave me pause.

This coding business baffles me. I recently tried out an online how to code course and lost the will to live after lesson 3. Surely it is not beyond the wit of IT technicians to invent a programme which translates “real” writing into computer code? I am a PhD student writing a novel in facebook status updates and it is clear that I will probably have to employ a computer expert to create a platform for my final draft. Any volunteers? Thanks. —Developing digital literacy in higher education: live chat | Higher Education Network | Guardian Professional.
