News from the frontlines of ed battle, or how technology makes students work.

Everybody got used to video materials used in distanse learning and remote education classes. Interestingly, we just completed a project for a "regular" class where professor selected to create video of the letures and distribute it to the students. Moreover, technology allows to have links to articles, web pages, etc on the same DVD, so students can access most of the info from the same computer (run DVD video, read articles, review data, etc). It is expected that they will view lectures and study materials before the class and come prepared for a discussion. Poor guys, way back then, they could go to a lecture to relax, now they are supposed to work! :-). Now, is there a technology that would force people to think?!
