Johnny Manziel taking only online classes at Texas A&M

http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon...asses/1929057/




Johnny Manziel has become the big man off campus.

The Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman winner said Monday night at the Davey O'Brien Award reception that all of his classes for this semester are online, though Texas A&M spokesman Brad Marquardt refused to confirm or deny Manziel's schedule in a phone call with USA TODAY Sports.

SPRING FOOTBALL: Dates for every FBS team

Manziel also told reporters at the reception that he's only on campus once every month.

Though the arrangement might seem odd, Manziel is well within his rights to tackle his course load online. He even tried to take an English course on campus this semester but had to drop it when his peers' requests for photos and autographs became too much.

"I didn't think anything of it, and it kind of turned into a little more of a big deal than I thought," Manziel said, according to the Associated Press.

Manziel's various outings since winning the Heisman – sitting courtside at NBA games, attending the Super Bowl and being photographed at Mardi Gras – have been well documented, and being under a microscope has taken a toll on him.

"I know plenty of friends who went down to Mardi Gras to New Orleans and other guys who went to the Super Bowl too," Manziel said. "I was down there with other college football guys too, so I don't know, people like to give me a hard time more than others. There's college kids doing what I'm doing all around the country. People just think I'm going wild with it, when it's not like that."

It's called multi-factor authentication. The Blackboard LMS has a number of ways this can be accomplished. BioSig-ID is relatively easy to implement via Building Block component. It looks like The CB is probably going to make it mandatory within the next 2 years, anyway.

Seriously. The Texas A&M University System isn't Kaplan College... You can check the CS campus' Reaffirmation of Accreditation at http://provost.tamu.edu/initiatives/...-accreditation if you would like. Online courses are held to the same rigorous standards as face-to-face courses.

This guy is destined for epic flameout. Sorry if Q:

http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2..._ga_after.html

Competitive fire or short temper?

You make the call.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel threw three interceptions during a scrimmage on Saturday at Kyle Field.

According to Brent Zwerneman, who covers the Aggies for The Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News, the Heisman Trophy winner didn't appreciate the celebration that took place after his last pick.

Per the report: "Following his last of three interceptions, on a short pass into the end zone as he ran into the right sidelines, an exuberant graduate assistant jumped up and down within what appeared to be inches of an irate Manziel. So Manziel shoved him. Players and coaches, who were all gathered along the sidelines, quickly separated the Giddy GA and Manziel before anything escalated."

The scrimmage, according to the report, took place in front of 2,000 fans.

Coaches and players weren't available for post-scrimmage interviews Saturday.

Zwerneman, who tweeted the incident was nothing more than a heat-of-the-moment thing, did report that Mike Evans had more than 200 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the scrimmage.

Online classes sucked ass. They're tedious and I imagine they'd be graded just the same as seated ones.

And on that note, seated classes are the reason why you shell out for attending a non-degree mill.

I took 2 or 3 online classes for my MBA. I did NOT like them. It was hard to buckle down on the material and I didn't feel like I learned what I should have. I'd opt for the in-person class every time if given a choice.

It's such a racket. Our high school is looking at making it a requirement for a student to take at least one online course for graduation. Wonder who gains by such a policy?

Students? No.
Teachers? No.
Local Economy? No.
School Administrators? Yes.
Online Course Companies? Yes.

As far as I have ever seen degree mills and online exclusive schools are FAR more expensive than any public or legitamite institution.

Online classes are a bane upon education.

There are nice things about an online interface that can be used in a traditional class--dropboxes, repositories for readings, syllabi, and other handouts--but an online-only format tries to replace the irreplaceable.
