    Frequently Asked Questions

    When does the class start?

    The class will start in February 2012.
    What is the format of the class?

    The class will consist of lecture videos, which are broken into small chunks, usually between eight and twelve minutes each. Some of these may contain integrated quiz questions. There will also be standalone quizzes that are not part of video lectures, and programming assignments. There will be approximately two hours worth of video content per week.
    Will the text of the lectures be available?

    We hope to transcribe the lectures into text to make them more accessible for those not fluent in English. Stay tuned.
    Do I need to watch the lectures live?

    No. You can watch the lectures at your leisure.
    Can online students ask questions and/or contact the professor?

    Yes, but not directly There is a Q&A forum in which students rank questions and answers, so that the most important questions and the best answers bubble to the top. Teaching staff will monitor these forums, so that important questions not answered by other students can be addressed.
    Will other Stanford resources be available to online students?

    No.
    How much does it cost to take the course?

    Nothing: it’s free!
    Will I get university credit for taking this course?
