University of California at Berkeley
Armando Fox fox@cs.berkeley.edu is a Professor in Berkeley’s Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Department and the Faculty Advisor to the UC Berkeley MOOCLab. He co-designed and co-taught Berkeley’s first Massive Open Online Course, “Engineering Software as a Service”, which over 10,000 students worldwide have completed and inspired the highly-rated textbook of the same name. He also serves on the Technical Advisory Committee of EdX, helping to set the technical direction of the OpenEdX MOOC platform. He has received numerous awards for teaching, mentoring, and research, including the 2015 ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award for the impact of his online education work. He has addressed the California legislature, the China Ministry of Education, and the Japan Top Global University Project, among others, on topics related to online and hybrid education. His current research in online education includes automatically helping students improve their coding style and improving engagement and learning outcomes in MOOCs. He is particularly interested on how MOOC and classroom education can mutually support each other. His degrees are from MIT (BS in EECS), the University of Illinois (MS in EE), and UC Berkeley (PhD in CS). He is also the author of “Piano/Conductor: So They Talked You Into Being Music Director”, which he believes to be the best book on music direction written by a computer scientist. He is a classically-trained musician and performer and a bilingual/bicultural Cuban-American New Yorker living in San Francisco.
