Five Free Courses from Stanford Start This Month

Stanford’s big open course initiative keeps rolling along. On March 12, three new courses will get underway:

Then, starting on March 19, two more will take flight:

The courses generally feature interactive video clips; short quizzes that provide instant feedback; the ability to pose high value questions to Stanford instructors; feedback on your overall performance in the class; and a statement of accomplishment at the end of the course.

And, yes, the courses are free and now open for enrollment.

As always, don’t miss our big list of 425 Free Online Courses. It may just be the single most awesome page on the web.

    I’m really excited about this free courses. I am really interested in taking one of them (Probabilistic graphical Models)for myself. I’m an inforamtics-bioinforamtics teacher at Universidad del Valle, Cali, Colombia, and I would like to find out if this course would be apropriate for our informatics students. But before I enroll, I would like to know more about time requirements and the pedagogic strategy of the courses:
    are the courses scheduled online on fixed days and hours? If so, when are they?, how much time for each session? How many weeks?
    Or do you send video (and other material) to the participants?
    Are supervised exercices planned? How flexible is the duetime in this case?
