It seems to have become popular within Microsoft and effectively exported from there. Being your instructor is teaching VB, it should be no surprise he is using it.

It isn't right or wrong, but can be very helpful. I suggest you stay open to the idea. You might find the idea helpful in the future. It is a quick way recognize the type you are using and if it makes sense in the context you are about to place the variable in. Also, when it is expected that others with be working on the code, it may be a good convention to follow.

Class should have opportunities for two way discussion, so I suggest you note those times where things don't make sense and either raise the question during class or discuss it later one on one. Be proactive.
