A professor has requested that a sign in sheet be placed on reserve in conjunction with a
video that he requires of students to screen. I did not comply to this request because I felt
it was a violation of student's privacy--we used to have sign in cards with every video but these
were destroyed some time ago. Some people feel that this is a harsh practice and the professor
has a right to know....I personally feel that if it so crucial for the class to see the video
then the professor should show the video in class. I would appreciate any feedback/past
experiences regarding this matter, if you have any.

you can email me directly, if you like
Thank you
