College 2.0: A Wired Way to Rate Professors-and to Connect Teachers

Jeffrey R. Young, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Jan 08, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This article in the Chronicle tries to suggest that 'the most wired professor' on campus is the person who has 'the most hits on the campus Blackboard system'. Leaving aside the question of whether the administration should be tracking its professors' activities at that level, we are still left with the reaction: what? Hits on Blackboard makes someone 'wired'? What is this, 1999? The 'most wired' professor on any campus will use a wide variety of applications, some of which (like their Second Life sessions) don't even show up as web 'hits'.
