Bio

"Online education broadens the choice, also very much for on-campus learners. If their teacher is not engaging enough or they want additional material, they can now resort to online alternatives. This will force professors to become better teachers."

Felienne Hermans is an assistant professor at Delft University of Technology. Her team at the Spreadsheet Lab works on making spreadsheets better by designing tools to test and improve them.

One of Felienne's biggest passions in life is to share her enthusiasm for programming with others. Therefore she co-organizes the yearly "Joy of Coding" conference in the Netherlands and teaches robotics at a community center each Saturday.

The online course Data Analysis: Take it to the MAX, devised by Felienne Hermans, has been given the Wharton-QS gold education award in the category Regional Award Europe: the prize for the best education innovation project entry in Europe.
