Slack no more: UNL gives boot to online notes NOTES from pagel The Web site has a disclaimer that says the notes listed are not the professor’s notes. They are not to be used as a substitute for attending lectures, the site says.While some teachers were unaware students in their classes were making a profit, oth ers were upset by the practice. History Professor Gary Moulton said he had a student taking notes for his History 202 class last year on versity.com. Moulton said he asked the student to identify himself or herself, but he or she wouldn’t. The notes the student posted were full of factual and spelling errors, Moulton said. “I told my class to go ahead and look at the notes but to not take that as the gospel,” Moulton said. “I would advise students to be careful about these (online) notes.” Moulton said his lectures were his intellectual property, and he would have liked it if somebody had asked him if he wanted to share in the profits. “(Selling notes) is a commer cial operation,” Moulton said. “And nobody paid me.” He likely would have cooper ated with the student had he or she approached him about it beforehand, Moulton said. That way, the facts could have been correct. Janice Lawrence, an associ ate accounting professor, said she did not agree with online note-taking services and said she hoped none of her students were participating in the online trade. A Web site check of studen tu.com, showed a student did take notes for Lawrence’s class in the 2000 spring semester. The note-taker received a top score of five stars for the quality of his or her notes. Lawrence said it was crucial for students to attend class. Online notes make it easier for students to skip, she said. “There’s value added from being in class,” Lawrence said. “I don’t want someone to take notes for a fee and then let another student think they can get the same thing without com ing to class.” Lawrence does everything she can to help her students out side of class, she said. There are copies of her notes, study guides and past exams in Love Library because she wants students to have resources avail able. At the same time, it’s impor tant for students to attend class and take part in the critical think ing exercises they do there, she said. “ (Teachers) know what we want the students to learn, and hopefully there’s some value in “Unless / can consent to it being on the Web, then it shouldn’t be there. Emily Greenwald history and ethnic studies professor us giving it to them," Lawrence said. Assistant history and ethnic studies professor Emily Greenwald had a student taking notes for one of her classes last year, as well. She said students should not be able to post lecture notes on the Web without consent from the professor first. Greenwald was never asked by the student and eventually contacted versity.com herself and asked that her page be taken down. Versity.com complied, she said. "This is material that I have put together and developed myself," Greenwald said. "Unless I can consent to it being on the Web, then it should n’t be there. My intellectual property rights had been violat ed.” Waterloo Regent Nancy O’Brien agreed that students' selling notes to an online compa ny violated the right to intellectu al property of a professor. “The basic feeling is that intellectual property belongs to the university and to professors,” O’Brien said. "It does not belong to stu dents, and students should not sell it for money.” Vedral testimony unshaken VEDRAL from pagel "She never indicated that she didn’t want sex,” Vedral testified. On cross-examination, prose cutors tried to shake Vedral by ‘ quizzing him on his account, but he did not falter. Later in the afternoon a med ical expert, Sanat Roy, challenged the idea the woman could have awoken to find Vedral already having sex with her. Roy, a psychiatrist who spe cializes in sex offenders, said it would not be possible for a healthy, 21-year-old, sexually active woman to be penetrated sexually without waking up. “ (There must be) lubrication * and cooperation or else it would I not be possible,” Roy said.
