Coronavirus prompts professors to hide their lectures from the public as everything goes online

All it takes is one ze[a]lous student’ to draw scrutiny.

College Fix: It wasn’t hard for students to record their professors saying brow-raising things before, like a professor calling Donald Trump’s election “an act of terrorism

Now that their classes have been made virtual due to COVID-19 fears, professors are strategizing even more how to prevent their students – and the public – from documenting evidence of their bias and rants before a captive audience that ended up overpaying for their education.

After Campus Reform highlighted it last week, Andrews University Prof. Anthony Bosman either removed or blocked the public from reading his Facebook post about how some faculty are “concerned about sharing their lectures online because of the sensitive/controversial nature of the topics they cover.”

When another Facebook user suggested alternatives, such as livestreaming rather than recording lectures or leaving them unlisted on YouTube, Bosman responded: “the concern is all it takes is one ze[a]lous student and that recording can hit the blogosphere…” He recommended not posting “anything online (private) that you don’t want to end up public.” read more

  2. Or maybe they should just stop spewing their usual evil Marxist bullshit rantings both online and in live classroom settings?

    (Yeah, like that could possibly ever happen.)

  3. When you work for a public institution and are making official statements (which is what lecturing a class is) then don’t say things you don’t want the public to know about.

    The secret will not remain secret, and dark things will eventually have light cast upon them.

  4. Its high time the public is made aware of the truth, come out of the shadows and show yourself.

  5. Hypocrites. They have been forcing self-censorship on students for decades, if not centuries. They fancy themselves intellectual icons, challenging the beliefs and norms of ignorance, when they themselves are intolerant of any challenge.

    My Marxist Economics and Marxism/Capitalism professor, 35 years ago, forbade the use of recording devices. He kicked out one student who ignored the warning. The course content was very balanced and he was in no way advocating for Marxist thought or principles. Nothing really controversial. He alluded to a bad experience he had had with a conservative student. Perhaps that is why his lectures were balanced? These days it would be leftist students trying to twitter storm and shout him off campus for lack of revolutionary zeal.

    Many other professors banned the use of recording devices, but it was not for fear of persecution. They were protecting their intellectual property. That, and they couldn’t have students comparing lectures over the years. Many professors write lectures early in their careers and never change them.

  6. They’re public institutions and they’re selling a product so their product should not be some top secret. Their product should be open to public scrutiny as a matter of law and public right.

  7. Frank Zappa wuz waaay ahead of his time:

    I am gross and perverted
    Im obsessed n deranged
    I have existed for years
    But very little had changed
    I am the tool of the government
    And industry too
    For I am destined to rule
    And regulate you

    I may be vile and pernicious
    But you can’t look away
    I make you think Im delicious
    With the stuff that I say
    I am the best you can get
    Have you guessed me yet?
    I am the slime oozin out
    From your tv set

    You will obey me while I lead you
    And eat the garbage that I feed you
    Until the day that we don’t need you
    Don’t got for help…no one will heed you
    Your mind is totally controlled
    It has been stuffed into my mold
    And you will do as you are told
    Until the rights to you are sold

    Today it’s oozing out of a computer monitor!

  8. Most people strive to be proud of their work. This bunch is ashamed of their work, and afraid of it being seen by the public.
