When enrolling into a class, you only see the name of the instructor/professor. Wouldn't it be great if you knew more about him--like how engaging his/her classes are or if you'll be overloaded with readings or assignments. [Editors: the same teacher may be hated and liked by many people, so keep in perspective who the intended audience is.]


It would be nice to have a standard way to rate them when adding new entries. For now, just use general terms similar to the following. A new system that has icons/colors would be good.
