If I took a class with the same instructor 2 years ago and am currently in another class with the same instructor:

Instructor: When was the last time you took a class with me?
Me: Uh, 2 years ago.
Instructor: That was pretty bad.
Me: No, you did fine.
Instructor: I remember I used slides that quarter.
Me: Transparencies, I think?
Instructor: Yeah, I thought you guys would learn better if you took your own notes.
Me: Yeah, I see. Do you remember a lot of your students?
Instructor: Yeah, do you know Jamie?
Me: No, that was a long time ago, I don't remember.
Instructor: I'm not sure if she was in your class.
Me: That's amazing, I think [that you remember your students].
Instructor: [looks down in a sad? disappointed? bothered? way]

What do you think?

No, you didn't say anything weird. You complimented him/her and a lot of people are just uncomfortable being complimented, period, especially insecure people. I act that way when someone compliments me too, but I'm actually really touched on the inside. You didn't say anything wrong, OP.

I don't know for sure because this is written out, but that last line could have been taken as sarcasm.

Other than that I'm not sure.
