How I wish I had a teacher like Gilbert Strang(MIT) when I was doing my undergraduate studies. I am currently watching his video lectures in the MIT OCW website. Absolutely phenomenal. The way he paces the lectures, the way he provides intuition – absolutely mindblowing.
I am exactly half-way through the course. It might take me another month to finish the course. But, already, it has enriched my understanding on the subject.
It is interesting to think that while coursera was launched last year – MIT OCW has been around for a while. For someone who wants to learn advanced subjects and lacking the resources/time to do a full-time study in that area, these are brilliant resources to leverage.
Sometimes I wish I’d started doing this earlier. As the adage goes: better late than never !
