Undisclosed use of cameras roils Harvard

Harvard University is coming under fire from some quarters for having conducted class-attendance research that involved the use of video cameras in 10 lecture halls holding some 2,000 students.

While aggregate attendance was the goal of the research and individuals reportedly were not identified, criticism has resulted because the students were not told about the cameras.

Harvard computer science professor Harry Lewis tells the Boston Globe: “You should do studies only with the consent of the people being studied.”
