If you’re close to my age (or older), you can probably recall taking a class in college that was so hard you had to tape the daily lecture so you could listen to it over and over in order to accurately capture the information in your notes. Professors can probably recall how students would frequently place their cassette recorders on the front desk or podium to record the lectures. (Remember, there were no magical iPhones at the time to record lectures on video.) I vividly recall having to do just that in my college Physiology class.
Do these images bring back memories?
