I'm gonna fail my now-online uni course. I'm not understanding jackshit.

Fuck this covid bullshit.

Thank you for listening.

    Soon we have to rename devrant to covid-rant. 😐

    A tag that got removed : did you ever think you'd miss tutorial classes?

    I have had a very negative experience with online learning this semester. It's a total hoax.

    @NickyBones it's worse when your professor is an utter asshole. I've been avoiding him the whole semester, but I'd like to see how many bother to sit in his exam this semester.

    What class?

    @katbreitin why? Are you offering free tutoring?

    Yeah, fuck covid. I failed too, because of fucking covid.

    FWIW, if there's any particular concepts you're failing to understand that I happen to know about, I'll do my best to help (within reason of course). Same goes for anyone else on here.

    That said, my specialisms these days are quite narrow, and probably not what you're struggling with. If it's anything to do with ML for instance, you're likely light years ahead of me already...

    @WildPotato something about some branch of software 😛

    When I was studying, students were also expected to do their own research anyway. Some classes were so bad that I skipped them entirely and learnt from books instead.

    Young people these days...

    @NoMad Its not called JackShit. Its called JavaScript. I understand the confusion though.

    @Demolishun I wish it was Javascript. At least I could hack some shit together.

    Working ~10 hours per day, I want only online classes. The cons is that you can't know well the professors.
    Pros. I don't need to drive 1 hour to attend class.
    Also I find it easy to do exams with open books. :P

    I don't need to get the points redacted in one exercise just because I forgot to free a pointer in C, or I forgot to write proper indentation in paper in Python.
    (Yes, professors tend to do that. Many of them)

    @TopsyKretts an old professor of mine once said "You don't go to a class to learn stuff. You can do that on your own anyways. You go to a class to learn how to think."

    Sure but we are probably in the same boat I am taking a class this summer too.

    Same here. I got nothing done this entire fucking semester. Online classes are the most unbearable shit in the world, and life sucks.
