“Professors Strike Back” — The Top 8 From ratemyprofessors.com

November 6, 2009 — 8

rate1 If you ask me, RateMyProfessors.com is nearly a perfect site. Why? Because it combines quick, hilarious entertainment with the value of a simple, reliable utility. Today, any college kid who ends up in a class with a shitty professor...has no one to blame but himself. There's literally no reason to ever register for a college class before checking ratemyprofessors to make sure the teacher and class are good. The site's growing like mad. With more than 6 thousand schools and one million professors, it's the most comprehensive site of its kind. And are college kids usingit? Um, yeah. So far, more than 10 million comments on the site show just how engaged users have become. My favorite thing about RateMyProfessors is PROFESSORS STRIKE BACK, in which professors -- who are routinely subject to brutal, anonymous assaults on the site -- are given a camera, a mic, and al olthe time they need to return fire. Some of these professors are hysterical, some are incredibly hot, some are terrifying, and some are martians. Courtesy of the guy who knows best, Steve Schutzman, here are 8 professors you gotta see to believe...

    Couldn't agree more. The power that students have now to know and understand their classes, course work and expectations is (for an older guy like me) astonishing. And obviously they recognize it! 10 million comments?! My god, RateMyProfessors it's a juggernaut of information and self expression. Do you have deck for this site y can send. Why are we not working together on this now!
