‘Dateline: RIT – The Podcast’ highlights Dateline: RIT, News hits, Podcasts

On “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast” this week, RIT marketing professors Neil Hair and Gene Fram give their takes on the popular Web site RateMyProfessors.com, where students can anonymously rate professors on qualities such as levels of clarity, “easiness,” helpfulness and, yes, even “hotness” (with red-hot chili pepper icons signifying “hot” professors).

Raters may also leave comments, and “smiley” and “frowny” faces indicate overall ratings.

The Web site claims to have ratings for more than a million professors, broken down by country, state and school. Listings by school can be viewed alphabetically and by discipline. As of today, 882 RIT professors are rated on RateMyProfessors.com.

Read Dr. Hair and Dr. Fram’s remarks in the Feb. 2 issue of Rochester Business Journal, and hear them on the pod—including their ratings for “Dateline: RIT” and Vienna Carvalho. (Does she earn a chili pepper? You can find out only by listening to the podcast.) Plus, Paul Stella, Bob Finnerty and Vienna share campus news and News & Events highlights.

Also on the pod, Kelly Downs of University News recently visited with Andy Phelps, director of game design and development in the Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences. They talked about RIT’s new master’s and bachelor’s degree programs in game design and development. Watch and hear them on our latest video podcast.

University News-produced podcasts are always free and available on the University News Web site (see “Latest Podcasts”) and via RSS feed and through Apple iTunes.

See you on the pod!
