Websites like RateMyProfessors.com, which provide learning content about over a million professors, have many pros. One is obvious: students are able to access learning content about professors and their style of teaching. In doing so they have a better idea of what they’re getting into before registering for a class.
Another is the anonymity of the rating system; student evaluation sheets are often hand-written so that the possibility of professors identifying the evaluator is greater. Online, students can be more honest.
Additionally, one might argue that sites like this put pressure on professors to improve their teaching and quality of learning content. Even though some professors may not care too much about the feedback on these sites, some do, and most people would rather not have negative reports of them publicly posted.
