Anyway, we understand what our professor wants to say.

I believe the students at "英米文学の世界" have noticed that our teacher usually says "anyways" instead of "anyway."

I somehow imagined that "anyways" would sound new and "cool," and that it might be used more commonly in the academic world.
However, Mignon Fogarty a.k.a. "Grammar Girl" says "anyways" is not a correct word.
