Hua rushes into the lecture theatre for her first ever lecture at uni. The only available seat she can find is in the front row next to Mele and Markus, who both sit there looking rather uncomfortable. As she sits down, Dr Kiri Williams, the lecturer, starts to speak from the podium.

Kiri:             That's what we’ll cover in GENED108: Sustainable cities. Now, on Canvas, you have my details - Kiri

Mele:           (whispers to Markus) What's canvas? And who’s Rubrick?

Markus:       (whispers back to Mele) It’s an online thing… Never met Rubrick.
