This is an offtopic post i stumbled upon the subject from a techblog I regularly read.
It’s quite common these days for people to “live blog” or “live Twitter” different conferences or events they’re attending, filling in others what’s happening in near real time. However, what happens when someone does that in a college class? Already, there are some professors struggling with the fact that students use the internet during class, but they’re not at all happy about the idea that they might not just be using the internet to surf around — but to report to others what’s happening inside the classroom. The issue is discussed in detail by Mark Glaser in his latest MediaShift column after an NYU professor told her students to stop blogging or Twittering things about her class.
Personally I am in favor of liveblogging class discussions to bring a collective discussion offline to what the professor has to say. If teachers arenÂ´t into this i would say lets find some new professors.
