Story on Teacher-YouTube Videos @ IHE

A story today, at Inside Higher Ed, following my reports last week about videos of teachers on YouTube.

My post from last week began "You think ratemyprofessors.com is unsettling? Try having a video taken of you teaching and uploaded to YouTube." Today's article in IHE begins "If you don’t like what RateMyProfessors.com has done for the image of professors, get ready for the YouTube effect."


  1. Fascinating, considering recent concerns ;-)

    Yeah, IHE pretty much plagiarized the whole apparatus of your recent posting... It was nice they quoted you (at the bottom!), but the article is pretty much a total usurpation of your original observation. Shame on IHE!

    seems like a pretty cut-and-dry case to me: http://library.csusm.edu/plagiarism/howtoavoid/how_avoid_paraphrase.htm

  4. Man, that's low. I respect IHE's attempt to pay more respect to bloggers than the CHE does, but sometimes they can seem a little parasitic.
