Forget Class, Just Get The Podcast
from the cutting-101 dept
Forget borrowing somebody’s notes or looking at the prof’s PowerPoint slides on the Internet, now college students can just subscribe to the podcast if they don’t want to go to class. Cue the inevitable backlash from people calling this the downfall of higher education, but it seems like a pretty good use of technology, really. If a student wants to go over a lecture again, they can, and somebody that tries to replace actually showing up for class with a podcast probably wasn’t that interested (and probably wasn’t going to do very well) anyway. But I guess Duke’s finally found a use for all those iPods they gave out.
