Lecturing students is so 20th century

"PowerPoint is boring. Student attention spans are short. Today many facts pop up with a simple Google search. And plenty of free lectures by the world's greatest professors can be found on YouTube.
Is it time for more widespread reform of college teaching?
This series explores the state of the college lecture, and how technologies point to new models of undergraduate education."

I have to Bachelors degrees.  I've sat through plenty of boring lectures.  There has to be a better way, especially with today's students with shorter attention spans.  This looks like a good start.
