Possibly one of the best and legendary professors in MIT. A dedicated PhD., this "Dutch-man" was a true inspiration for many of us students for not only doing those special dotted lines on the chalkboard, but making Physics at a Calculus level easy. I can't believe he retired because I want to get him, but he's still here on the Web. Thanks Walter!

Lewin is a very inspiring professor. I came into 8.01x not really liking physics but he showed me how fascinating and fun physics is. I got really into physics, doing the several hour long problem sets everyday and trying to improve my own physics throughout the course. Now I feel like I have learned a lot about physics and I like it now.

Perhaps the best teacher I've ever seen. I used his 801 lectures to help me pass my Physics course. Without him, I don't think I would have passed. He's just that superb.

Walter Lewin is a true gem in the physics community and an idol to a lot of people. His lectures are immensely entertaining as well as easy to follow. The man has a true gift of taking physics and sharing it with the world.

Downloaded his Electricity and Magnetism on iTunes U. One of the best lectures I've seen. I've learned a substantial amount without even taking the course in person. I'm excited to see his other lessons. Helped fuel my love for Physics

Walter Lewin is the single greatest professor i've seen so far! So into his teaching and not trading the concepts for math. He really is a physics great! ps, i dont usually take time to rate, but had to let the world in on his awesomness even tho i took it online. ps, be prepared to learn and it will be awesome cuz u'll learn a lot and enjoy it

He brings the passion to the class. He's really inspiring and a great example of an awesome Physics teacher. He doesn't kill students' interest in Physics by teaching vigorously and allowing students to see the beauty of Physics- at the same time challenging them with thought-provoking questions.
