You know what else tracks students' reading? Tests.
They're trying to throw more money at education instead of just teaching the kids.
Sounds like something Big Brother with evil intent would say.
I love this paragraph.
What I hate? Students learning at their own pace.
Do they know if you're studying naked?
And I used to get mad when a college prof took attendance.
The e-book will be sold for $490 compared to the $500 print book. However, the student will not have the opportunity to sell the book back for $15 four months later.
Some of the ebooks I used in school expired... so not only could you not sell it back, you don't actually own it for your own use after a certain amount of time.
Students can't get away with shit anymore.
Da' Man be all up in their grill.
Surprised there haven't been more school massacres.
And they do it a lot better than a report of how long a page was displayed on a reader.
College students are free to learn the material from any source, they aren't limited to the text the professor chooses for the course.
Glad I'm not a student anymore.
I'm an unorthodox learner - sometimes one quick breeze and I got it down, sometimes I need to repeat again and again. I am a good judge of when I feel ready or not, and I got the summa cum laude degree to attest to it. Forcing this kind of thing on me as a student would have the opposite of the desired effect. This is just like the Ritalin for kids craze - lets make everyone a carbon copy of everyone else. Just good little drones ready to become identical members of a boring society.
