Bastard U is in session. Today I started my road to academic recovery by taking an online course. I ditched most of the first class, it's a lot of "read, then click here to show you've read it". There's a chat room, which I'm hoping is being watched by Chris Hansen. Participation counts a lot towards the grade, I'm going for 100% in the chat room.
I can see the appeal of online learning though. It's not often I've been able to learn while watching porn and having the new They Might Be Giants CD on in the background. My instructor posted a picture of herself on the site, we're meant to do the same. I'm using this one.
It appears that the rest of the class is responsible adults. I'm looking forward to LOLCatting or drawing spitballs on their pictures. It takes a lot of effort to be a bad student online.
