Professor Lagerstrom is one of the best professors I have had the pleasure to learn from. With nothing but a whiteboard, a few colored markers and a few yardsticks, he assures that you understand completely his explication of the Special theory of relativity, somethng that I have tried to understand on my own several ties before. Some may feel that his teaching methods lack technical sophistication; I on the other hand, think that his no-frills approach is the essence of clarity. Way to go, Professor Larry, keep on teaching MOOCS. The world is so much better for your efforts!!!!

ModPo is my first online course. This course is beautifully designed and well executed by Prof Filreis and his capable TA's. I have learned so much, far beyond my expectations, about poetry that I am committed to continue study, and to stay involved with the ModPo community for the next twelve months. Prof. Al's pedagogy is wonderful. He is a marvelous facilatator of student learning, eschews the lecture method of teaching, and encourages students to learn from each other and from sources presented by him in the core syllabus. What a wild ride this was! I will certainly continue studies in poetry and in other subjects as well through MOOC's - education for everyone. It is wonderful!!
