ONLINE COURSES HOLD PROFESSORS ACCOUNTABLE

Online Courses Hold Professors Accountable
We live in an interesting time. A news story breaks and is online in less than 30 minutes. A celebrity goes out in public with what’s rumored to be a new significant other and within before you can think twice the photographic evidence is on the internet in the form of a Twit Pic or Google image. The advent of the internet and this technology has not only made information readily available for the taking, it has also created a sort of digital paper trail that—unless you’re Al Gore who invented and controls the internet—cannot be erased.
While this may be a bit unsettling and you may dread “googling” your name for fear of what might resurface, it also creates a new level of responsibility. Although no one should fear being watched or monitored 24/7, as that completely violates the right to privacy, this is an important development when it comes to holding our teachers, leaders and policy makers accountable for what they say and do.
Along those lines, the advancements in the world of higher education—such as the increased enrollment in online education, and more and more classes implementing online discussion boards—are giving students and the public alike more power when it comes to battling liberal professors who like to preach and propagate political lies.
I’d like to say it was rare that I’d be in a lecture hall listening to the politically slanted rants of my professors, but that would be a lie. It seems that once they get behind that podium they feel as if they have the right to say anything they please, regardless of how blasphemous and invalid it is. They stand up before hundreds of impressionable college students and impose their left-leaning ideals, as though there exists no alternative.
Granted, some students have outside references such as their parents, organizations and churches, but for the majority of their day they are being bombarded by these wanna-be political pundits abusing their position of power. However, thanks to online classes and universities, the professor’s coveted podium is removed and all that’s left are a bunch of monitored documents and discussion boards that just don’t lie. Knowing this, professors are becoming more mindful and cognizant of what they say, thereby lessening their political influence and opportunity to sway their students’ beliefs.
Additionally, aside from the fact that practically everything is documented and can be traced, the professors also just don’t have the time to vent about political parties or elections—unless they are seeking a poor end of semester review in which the students describe the lack of adequate course material covered.
Overall, the internet and information age should be making everyone more mindful of their actions, because if they aren’t it will surely come back to bite them in the butt one day.
