I think that Andrew Wilkinson has hit the nail on the head when it comes to professors podcasting their classes.

If a professor puts a podcast up of their lectures there is no reason for them to come to class, the students to come to class, or heck, for there to even be a class. So, basically what ends up happening is, you pay $600 for a class where you listen to your computer or iPod and you occasionally e-mail the professor.

Being homeschooled till I was in 8th grade, I do feel like I learned more on my own than I did in public school. I also feel like here in college I learn more by just picking up a book and reading or doing my own research.

I think universities need to step back and re-think the way they do business and run their curriculum. Think from a student’s perspective, think about the consequences of podcasting everything.
