It's interesting how many people still think the internet is a terrible way to learn when so many B&M classes are just glorified computer labs anyway.

Aside from the delay in getting questions answered; but how many students even bother/remember to ask questions during the lecture itself?

I guess extreme extroverts simply can't understand being able to learn while NOT surrounded by a seething mass of fellow students.


I can't tell you how many courses I've taken at a b&m college where the professor literally spent 45 or 50 minutes reading the textbook to us! What a freaking waste of time! I learned to read as a young child. I don't need someone to read the book to me. Definitely not someone I have to pay thousands of dollars for. There was no point in attending those classes either. 

I actually took a course like that at NYU. It was insane. Every class, he'd just go around the room making us take turns reading out loud from the textbook. And since the class was International Economics, you can imagine how scintillating those 3 hours were twice a week.


Oh I get it! I had a financial accounting professor and a macroeconomics professor do this. Both were monotone. Nothing like trying to make either one a little exciting. Aren't you glad you paid NYU tuition to be read to? LOL

WE HAD TO DO ALL THE READING!!!  Big Grin So we just read to each other, and he taught us nothing. We just wrote papers.

That's even better! So glad you all paid for that class. Unbelievable. And he's probably some highly regarded professor. Why? No one knows.
