An idea whose time has come?

At least during Ramadan. College classes at midnight. The Chronicle of Higher Education has the story:
At a time of night when many people are hitting the sack, a number of Bunker Hill Community College students will be hitting the classroom this fall.

To accommodate working adults and open more class times for its growing student population, the Massachusetts college will offer two courses that run from 11:45 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.: “Principles of Psychology,” on Tuesdays, and “College Writing I,” on Thursdays. Both are three-credit courses.

College officials chose the midnight time slot for people who get off work late and have to be up early with their children.
