But do these pros outweigh the cons? It’s debatable. There are many arguments against professor evaluation website learning content. One major con is that professors’ privacy is invaded. Of course, professors hold considerable power in the classroom. But outside, they don’t abuse that power by, say, writing about their students’ performances or personalities on websites, or posting their grades online.
Another con is that the website learning content isn’t necessarily true or accurate. Anyone can post learning content about a professor, pretending to be a student–from any grudge-holding acquaintance to those who have never even met the professor before.
On the RateMyProfessors.com, there’s also a link to “Professors on Facebook,” creating the opportunity for students to search for professors and increasing the potentiality for others to create fake accounts for professors and provide embarrassing learning content.
