Yeaahh but a University aint exactly in existence purely for publicity. Traditionally education takes a priority unless of course it was the Uni I went to ....morons !!stoid said:They got lots of publicity and such out of it.
This editorial wasn't written by the faculty... it was written by STUDENTS. And their whole point is that renewing the program is a mistake, since the iPods have been terribly ineffective so far and, starting with next semester, they will only be given to people who enroll in particular courses (creating "iPod courses"), often for the wrong reason ("Ooh, I get an iPod if I sign up for Comparative Anthropology 101!").Pismo said:That's the problem with old fart professors. They never conform to new trends. The iPod can be a viable tool. I bought a Griffin iTalk to connect to my iPod so I could record the lectures when I was in college last year. Saved my butt a few times when I feel asleep.
I read on CNN.com that Duke is renewing the program with Apple and the students love it. Oh yeah, who gives a damn what the faculty thinks?
