Keith Devlin’s Thoughts About MOOCs

Keith Devlin is a mathematician and math educator. I first encountered his work when I read his book, The Math Gene (2000). Keith Devlin is the Executive Director of the Human-Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research Institute (H-STAR) at Stanford University and The Math Guy on NPR's Weekend Edition. He writes Devlin's Angle, a monthly column sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America.


Devlin teaches at Stanford University, the home of the first Massively Open Online Course (MOOC). He has twice taught such a course, Introduction to Mathematical Thinking—most recently in fall 2012. He blogs about this activity at http://mooctalk.org/.
