A sign of the times? Or a clever publicity stunt? Probably a bit of both. A college has decide to teach a class on YouTube.
For the first time this fall, Pitzer is offering a class about the popular video-sharing Web site, and every session is being filmed and posted on that site (not quite live, but close to it). You can see it for yourself, more than 30 minutes of the opening class, right here on the courseâ€™s YouTube page. You can see the professor, who introduces herself to her students the same way she introduces herself to the online world, through a no-frills eight-minute video.
Here’s the class introduction on video.
Here’s a sample of class one.
