As a result, students rely on word of mouth, gossip, and paper course catalogs that only belong in the nineteenth century. Going green calls for paperless systems. Unwanted classes and ineffective professors produce loss of students and frustration for students and faculty alike. With the rising costs of tuition, students do not have the time or the resources to waste semesters in unnecessary courses.
What we propose is for every course offered there be an online professor profile, a detailed synopsis of the topics covered, an attached syllabus and booklist. Attaching the syllabus and booklist would further the goal of a more environmentally friendly campus, by allowing students to retain an electronic copy rather than a paper copy.
