About every university course has it’s website where professors place their slides and all kinds of information. The wrong part is those asking you to visit their website frequently to read news and updates on the course plan. I don’t like the idea of having to visit a website daily. I do visit Slashdot every day, because if I don’t I’ll miss content, but I don’t want to be forced to visit a course website every day! Why don’t they simply put up an RSS/RDF/Atom feed so I can simply see when new information is available?
It might be too high-tech for them, but I can’t accept this as an excuse in a software engineering program. Even a mailing list would be better than having to visit a website.
