No Need to Show

The iPod Took My Seat - Los Angeles Times: "Americ Azevedo taught an 'Introduction to Computers' class at UC Berkeley last semester that featured some of the hottest options in educational technology. By visiting the course's websites, the 200 enrolled students could download audio recordings or watch digital videos of the lectures, as well as read the instructor's detailed lecture notes and participate in online discussions.

But there was one big problem: So many of the undergraduates relied on the technology that, at times, only 20 or so actually showed up for class."
