Back in Autumn 2011, Stanford university announced that it was going to provide some of its course material online for free (Read my original post here). Evidently this was successful because they are doing it again in January/February 2012.
Relevant Computer Science and Entrepreneurship courses running are:
Lean Launchpad, Technology Entrepreneurship
CS 101, Machine Learning, Software as a Service
Human-Computer Interaction, Natural Language Processing
Game Theory, Probabilistic Graphical Models, Cryptography
Design and Analysis of Algorithms I, Computer Security
As previously, the courses are going to be primarily video based. There is no direct access to the tutor but there is a Q&A forum in which students rank questions and answers with the top ranked of those followed up with during a lecture. All student work is assessed using an online evaluation tool that will evaluate the progress of the student during the students time on the module. Quizzes and exams will also be administered electronically.
