College Professor Sends Out Email Telling Students To "Hang Their Cell Phone Around Their Neck" So They Don't Cheat On The Final Exam

My initial reaction to reading that screen grab...

MJ on Oprah in 2005. I mean how absolutely delusional can these college professors be? If your students are at home...they're going to cheat. If your students are IN class...they're going to cheat. It doesn't matter where they are or what restrictions you put on them, those who want to break the rules are going to find a way to do so. It's as simple as that. Having students hang their cell phones around their neck so you can "monitor their screen" isn't going to change anything. All it's going to do is get you posted on 5th year and turn you into the laughing stock of the student body. 

It's just so bizarre to me that some professors still have this "us vs them" mentality when it comes to teaching. It's like they don't realize they're on the same side as their students. If I had to guess I'd say whoever wrote that email is on the older side. Sad. 

If there's anyone reading this who's in that class let me know how the final goes, I'm genuinely curious. Also, I'm pretty sure that if you adjust the brightness on your computer screen it makes recording it nearly impossible. Just a heads up.
