Right. Some of my classes were podcasted from time to time, and obviously I made it a point to skip those classes, and I definitely never got around to listening to that poo.
See, I actually found these to be very helpful. I have attention problems when trying to listen to something, so it was great to be able to rewind whenever I realized I'd gotten distracted for any substantial period. I'd spend half an hour extra doing that, and made better use of the time when I skipped class.
Also, FWIW, my dad taped all his lectures both in law school and his LLM. I think it was a relatively popular strategy then, probably because it was the late 80s-early 90s when tiny tape recorders were available but laptops were not. I have no idea if he actually found it helpful because I was like 8 years old, but it makes me think that it might be useful if you're a terrible typer or just can't listen and take good notes at the same time.
