I've never taken a physics class. This course was excellent and I highly recommend it. The teacher explained things very well with lots of enthusiasm. The visual aids really helped get the concepts down. Very easy to understand and interesting too. The presentations were very well planned and presented. I look forward to taking more classes from this professor.
I have studied Special Relativity a lot and teach a brief introduction to the subject however, I'm no expert on the subject...still lots to learn. Prof. Langerstrom is an outstanding teacher. He presented what can be confusing ideas in a very clear and concise way and he did it with charm and humility. Of all the resources out there for learning SR, this class is far and away the absolute best resource. It gives both a qualitative and quantitative understanding of the subject. My math is rusty so it was helpful that he went through ever step of the math explaining each step clearly. The Coursera format is also excellent and allows you (if you're viewing online) to speed up and slow down the presentation. So, for me, I was able to speed through the parts that I knew well and focus on those I wanted a better understanding of. I can not say enough nice things about Coursera and Prof. Langerstrom. Both put on a first class presentation. HIghly recommend it to anyone of any age and background.
