Get Smarter for Free!

Stanford is offering free on-line classes this spring. They won't count for college credit, or get you closer to a diploma, but they will allow you to tell your co-workers that you studied "at" Stanford:

Computer science courses:
* Computer Science 101
* Machine Learning (one of the offerings this past fall)
* Software as a Service
* Human-Computer Interaction
* Natural Language Processing
* Game Theory
* Probabilistic Graphical Models
* Cryptography

Entrepreneurship courses:
* The Lean Launchpad
* Technology Entrepreneurship

Happy learning.

  1. I think you missed one. There'a an anatomy class too. I'm going to sign up for it.

  2. Well, at least they're letting us know how much of a rip-off it is to pay for online classes...

  3. Ben, what are you trying to say about the Astrophysics Doctorate that I bought online?

  4. This is great. A while back I took an American History (1865-Present) class "at" Berkeley. Virtually aced it. Oh my that's funny.
