|What my teacher, Mr. Strang, looked like.|
The professor in that somewhat grainy video whom I challenged to teach me something that I actively refused to learn for many years in school was a really nice, maybe about 60 year old guy named Gilbert Strang. Right when he started talking, you would know that he was not really the most outgoing, dynamic, gushing and enthusiastic person ever, but that he loved what he was doing. I quickly thought that, apart from “quality knowledge” that is being passed on, it is the “perfect” teacher who would make the “perfect” MOOC just that. This goes also well with J. Daniel, who in is 2012 paper stated that the “real revolution” of MOOCs might be to remind institutions of their obligation to focus on quality teaching, rather than on other efforts like research. And even though he only blinked with his left eye, Mr. Strang did a very decent job.
