Stanford University offered three of their most popular computer
science courses to the public this fall, online for free. The courses
were so popular that Stanford’s doing it again in January.
This time they’re offering 7 computer science courses:
Computer Science 101 http://www.cs101-class.org/
Machine Learning (one of the offerings this past fall)
Software as a Service http://www.saas-class.org/
Human-Computer Interaction http://www.hci-class.org/
Natural Language Processing http://www.nlp-class.org/
Game Theory http://www.game-theory-class.org/
Probabilistic Graphical Models http://www.pgm-class.org/
And two entrepreneurship courses:
No tuition, no textbooks, no set class times (students get a week to
complete the assignments).
