StudentU.com

Information wants to be free, but the Puritans will always try to control it.

StudentU is a classic example of the sort of site that's creating a buzz by offering controversial information online. StudentU hires students at major universities to sit in on lectures and take notes. This work is then posted to the web site and made available to college students for free.

Critics lambaste the idea - saying it will encourage laziness on the part of terminally undermotivated students.

(This certainly seems like a Least Common Denominator Attitude towards students - most of whom realize the advantages a good education can provide even if they don't always follow through).

The site's creator argues the idea is to provide a service for students who have to miss a class or want to catch up on what their classmates are doing.

We think the idea is a good one.

If all it takes to ace a course is a set of posted lecture notes, there is something wrong with the way students are being taught.
