More Free Online CompSci Courses from Stanford U
You may remember that I posted a Page about Free CompSci Video Courses from Stanford U back in October. Well, they’re now offering 10 additional free online courses beginning in January 2012. (Actually, it looks like a couple may be repeats, but there are still plenty of new ones.)
Below are brief descriptions of all of them. Be sure to visit the source link for more info and direct links to the website for each class.
I’m very excited about this as I’m in the middle of the Introduction to Databases course, which will be wrapping up next month, and it has been excellent.
