    Default Apparently the Universities are upping their game.

    I can't wait.

    I'm going to view ALL my lectures via podcasts.

    Think this could work, guys?

    if you are in a stadium with 200 peers it's not that easy to ask the teachers about what you didn't understand.... and really, with some teachers it's not even worth coming to their teachings ^^"

    of course, the problem is that if you decide to only listen to these podcast you will have to be very industrious and let your laziness somewhere very far away from your home


    ps : another problem is if the teacher doesn't speak the same language as yours, or if he is totally ununderstandable.... then you won't be able to understand without going to his teachings to see what he wrotes on the blackboard

    Downloading podcasts of lectures is a new twist on the older idea of students giving a friend in class their tape recorder and asking them to record the lecture for them because they needed to go study for a test in another class or do something else that was more important.

    Think it might have been in the movie "Real Genius" where they took this to an extreme and made a joke out of it. Beginning of the semester everyone's attending class and taking notes, but by the end of the semester you look inside the classroom and find there are now only tape recorders on all the desks to record the lecture (and there's even a tape deck on the professors podium playing a recorded lecture). Everyone had a better use for the time than attending that class.

    That''d be pretty cool to be able to rewatch lectures, though I bet I'd be too lazy to even do that...

    I wonder how they set it up for distance learning classes. I've seen them offer it but I've never taken any.

    I dont think this is necessarily a bad idea. I personally go to a small lib. arts college, so this kind of thing doesnt work at a school like mine with small classes.

    Well, seriously speaking, I'd probably do it, but I'll still need to attend the actual lecture, just to understand it.

    I definitely would appreciate this.
    I could look over the lectures, and prove my teachers actually are idiots, and get them fired. (those who are idiots anyways)
