Education: Bad Lectures


The great thing about online learning is that thanks to plethora of info on the internet, people from every style of learning can succeed. The system breaks down when professors or students rely too much on old fashioned learning/teaching devices. I'm struggling to stay awake through the long lectures my philosophy prof keeps giving in heavily accented ESL and with no visuals but fuzzy MS WORD documents. I'm tuning out and we haven't even gotten to Socrates yet. Why in the age of YouTube do I have to suffer through boring, low-tech lectures? It's like watching your neighbor's 80 slide presentation on their family vacation in Nebraska. Oy.
