To clear things up, some FAQ

A number of different initiatives are offering university-level education for free. Some of the bigger initiatives covered are as follows:
  • Coursera founded by Stanford Professors Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng.
  • Udacity founded by three roboticists, including Sebastian Thrun, a research professor of computer science at Stanford University and currently leads the development of Google’s driverless car.
  • EdX is a not-for-profit enterprise of its founding partners Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Anant Agarwal, former Director of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, serves as the first president of edX
What are MOOCs?

From Wikipedia - A massive open online course (MOOC) is a type of online course aimed at large-scale participation and open access via the web. MOOCs are a recent development in the area of distance education, and a progression of the kind of open education ideals suggested by open educational resources.

Q. How is this different than MIT Open Courseware or any of the previously offered free online courses?

The courses provided by these online learning initiatives have an element of feedback, student-to-student and student-to-professor communication and provide structured deadlines like a university course. By engaging students in quizzes and exams they go above the normal methodology of online courses

Q. What type of the courses are offered?

A wide range of courses are being offered belong to fields of computer science, medicine, music, humanities, business, management and more!

Q. Do I get university credit?

No, university credits can not be earned but you might be able to get a statement of accomplishment or a certificate.

So you would rather take algebra than talk to your neighbours? lol. Kidding, I myself am interested in learning Spanish. didnt realize that was an option. thanks for the headsup

Quote from notablanda2000 View Post :
I signed up for a Spanish I class after discovering that the algebra classes are both filled. Maybe I'll be able to communicate with some of my neighbors now ;-)

Thanks to the OP for putting this list together. I was looking for a way to keep my education going on the cheap as I'm already in hock for two degrees.

Signed up for a class, but it doesn't say what time or what days it's on? Just that it starts on the 28th?

Quote from ViciousTide View Post :
I wonder if failing a course or withdrawl failing will show up on your "Employment" Report? Kind of like a Credit Report but for your career.
I would like to know this as well. Would dropping out of a course or failing it somehow negatively affect me (besides hurting my self-confidence)?

It's for self-enrichment. No, you are not going to put this on your resume. No, you are not going to say you attended Stanford, Harvard, MIT , so no it will not negatively impact your career.

I dont see why you couldnt put it on your resume, and I dont see why you couldnt say you attended Stanford if you took a class provided by them.

The only difference between this and actually receiving credits is $2,000, nothing more.

Just curious, couldn't you just refer to your old notes or textbook, instead of spending so much more time taking this class?
