Professor Larry Fong, who has been teaching for more than two decades, was recently named one of The Globe and Mail’s top ten online professors.
Professor Fong has been studying computer programming since he was a graduate student at University of British Columbia in 1991, when he decided to dedicate his career to helping others understand the world around them.
“It was just the right time for me,” he said.
“In the late 90s, the computer industry was in a really bad place, so it was a good time for someone to take on a job that was actually useful to society.”
There are things we don’t understand about the world that we need to understand, and that’s the sort of thing that is important to me.
It’s about being able to help people understand the future.””
Professor Fonng’s work is taught online through Coursera, the free online education service for online learners, as well as at universities across Canada. “
I think I did the best I could, but also, I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve given people a platform to learn.”

His first course was “The Art of Data Science” in 2011.
Professor Fong said his work is often influenced by his experiences in the IT industry.
“I think that my own career trajectory has been influenced by what I learned there,” he explained.
“When I was in IT, I was a software engineer and I would go to the computer room and it was basically a place where you would meet other software engineers, and then you would build stuff together.
I was actually doing it with my friends, and they would build computers together.”
At the time, it was not the case that you would learn how to program on a laptop.
You would learn to code on a desktop or laptop.
The computer lab is the laboratory that you are in, but you are doing it in the classroom because you are learning something that is really important, and it’s the classroom that has to have a computer.” “
One of the things that was really interesting about this course was that it was very much about the classroom, rather than the computer lab,” Professor Jenson said.
“The computer lab is the laboratory that you are in, but you are doing it in the classroom because you are learning something that is really important, and it’s the classroom that has to have a computer.”
Professor Janson said he believes the course has helped him build an appreciation for how important computers are to society and the world.
“In a lot of the online courses, there’s a focus on learning theory and how to use technology in ways that are practical,” he noted.
In his first course, Professor Foning also helped to create an online tutorial on how to create a web application. “
There is a lot more that goes into the classroom than there is for a computer lab.”
In his first course, Professor Foning also helped to create an online tutorial on how to create a web application.
“So this tutorial is really kind of a stepping stone, in a sense, to building a real web application,” he added.
Professor Jenson has also been teaching a course called “What Makes You a Professor?” that uses the internet to teach the basics of teaching.
“People are always interested in what makes them a good teacher,” he recalled.
“They’re interested in whether they can really teach something, and I think what makes me a good educator is that I can be really honest about my methods.”
In 2016, he received a nomination for a Doctor of Laws.
Professor Jison agreed that he had a good work-life balance.
“We are lucky in Canada to have so many good teachers,” he stated.
“Because we are in Canada, we are able to have this incredible opportunity to teach people in a very collaborative way.”
Professor Jison said he would love to see more students take on the teaching role and help other people learn.
“The future is bright,” he advised.
I think that is the real danger of being a teacher.”””
And if you’re not going to do that, I think you’re going to end up in a situation where you don’t have any idea what you’re doing.
I think that is the real danger of being a teacher.””
We need to be more open and transparent about who we are and how we get funded,” Professor Fonsong said.
