Task "The teacher is the fountain of all knowledge." 1. What is your response to this statement? Why? 2. What is the perception of the roles of teachers and students in your country? 3. How is the learning environment structured and does it facilitate your learning? (By 'learning environment I am referring to situations within which learning occurs, such as lectures, seminars, group work, individual work, learning by rote.) 1. In this era of technology, having access to the internet, where students can find out the answer to their query or gather knowledge with a single search, I do not agree with the statement "The teacher is the fountain of all knowledge" anymore. Where technology is widely accessible, students can self-educate themselves without any direct assistance requiring from the teacher. However, teachers are mentors and the source of wisdom. They guide students on how to gather the required knowledge from the internet. The statement is true for those who don't have access to internet and as a result the teacher is the only source to understand knowledge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
