The Ombudsman is to be stationed in Vancouver BC, Canada.
http://www.WorldwideUniversity.edu - with its consortium office likewise presently located in Vancouver - would be pleased to cooperate with the Ombudsman n any appropriate way.
Our interest partly derives from the fact that our president, Dr Raymond Spencer Rodgers, specifically predicted and named the "electronic web" (and alternatively suggested the name "telesphere" in 1971 (long before Berners-Lee and others actually manufactured it). The text of the 1971 108pp publication has since been on the web for a decade, at http://www.vcn.bc.ca/web-prophet
We have also had decades of interest in on-line (starting with BBS) education, but failed to attract early funding donations in the context. http://www.WorldwideUniversity.edu/historic.htm#vsol
As a challenged institution (see the fifth text paragraph on our homepage http://www.WorldwideUniversity.edu ) we are familiar with the sort of quandaries that an Ombudsman is appointed to address. We suggest that the Ombudsman will likely also find useful the UIA publication referred to in the third text paragraph of http://www.VancouverUniversity.edu/worldu.php
