My physics and chemistry classes both have a 3 hour lecture one day then a 2 hour lab a different day per week. It's common depending on what time the classes you choose are. I'm not sure why people leave, some in my classes leave at the break too. They all knew what they were getting into when they enrolled for the semester. It's not like they were tricked.
Did you make sure to tell them it was just a break? Usually with long classes like that, breaks are mandatory but sounds like college and students leave all the time if they feel like it. If they all left though, maybe you weren't specific enough lol.
Keep teaching the empty room. Then they can't complain on not knowing the info on the test.
They paid for university, if they want to waste all that money let them
That was honestly my thought process for so long. I was really indifferent to a lot of things. Then I failed a class and my dad made me pay for it when I retool it during the summer. I had to work so much just to pay for that one class. A lot of college kids whose parents pay for their classes are like that.
YDI for not giving a small 5-10 minute break each hour. I had a 2 hour lecture for Maths last year and barely anyone showed up because it dragged on and the lecturer eventually had to give us a small break after an hour.
I had a 4 hour class that went till 11 at night once a week. we often skipped our break due to being behind via being let out at 10:20. I can't see how you can't focus enough to do 2 hrs? most of my 2 hr classes didn't even touch a break. and that was totally fine. do you pay for your own college #12? probably not
