Submission + - Attack of the PowerPoint-Wielding Professors

theodp writes: Over at Carolyn Blogs, CS student Carolyn offers an interesting take on why learning from PowerPoint lectures is frustrating. Unlike an old school chalk talk, professors who use PowerPoint tend to present topics very quickly, leaving little time to digest the visuals and take learning-reinforcing notes. Also, profs who use the ready-made PowerPoint lectures that ship with many textbooks tend to come across as less than connected with their material. Then there are professors who just don’t know how to use PowerPoint, a problem that is by no means limited to college classes.
