On Nov. 14, Business Insider spoke to Penn professor Kenneth Goldsmith about the recent attention his newest course "Wasting Time on the Internet" has been receiving.

Critics of the course express concern over the class not being worth the tuition students pay, but Goldsmith disagrees. "I think that we are a very guilt-ridden culture about the time that we're spending on the Internet. I'm trying to get rid of those notions," Goldsmith said.

Goldsmith added that he plans to impose no restrictions on the class. Students are able to spend the three-hour-long course doing whatever they like on the Internet, including watching porn.

"If they want to watch three hours of porn and write a great piece of erotica inspired by it, I'm all for it," he added. 

Goldsmith's course will take place in spring 2015.
