First, popularity could serve as a relatively solid indicator in determining whether the learning experience with a particular professor has been a satisfying one. A critical factor that one could not overlook in course-selection, particularly if one is an undergraduate student and barely knows anything about the academic subject that he or she decides to take on, is motivation, the joy one experiences in learning. Satisfying experience is extremely essential for beginners, because it is in these moments that one goes through a surge of confidence, masters the courage to take on more challenging academic tasks further down the road, and builds up self-efficacy that allow one to continue the long journey of learning. While it is not for certain that the most popular voted professor would give each individual student a memorable lesson, it is very likely that one would be more motivated to explore because of the enjoyable classroom learning experience. Such experience is more precious for a young student compares to learning under the tutelage of an award-wining professor due to his research. Though an award-winning professor could also be passionate to share his insights regarding a particular subject, wining award based on one’s research paper does not indicate one could motivate others to learn the fundamentals. The best researcher in engineering could be brilliant in his analysis on paper and turns out to be less articulate as a speaker. Such worries are unnecessary if one picks the popular-voted professor, who has earned his reputation, apparently, in explaining complex ideas to beginners.??
