Stanford Opens Seven New Online Courses for Enrollment (Free)

This fall, Stan­ford launched a high­ly-pub­li­cized exper­i­ment in online learn­ing. The uni­ver­si­ty took three of its most pop­u­lar com­put­er sci­ence cours­es and made them freely avail­able to the world. Each course fea­tures inter­ac­tive video clips; short quizzes that pro­vide instant feed­back; and the abil­i­ty to pose high val­ue ques­tions to Stan­ford instruc­tors. The response? It has been noth­ing short of amaz­ing. One course alone (Intro­duc­tion to Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence) pulled in more than 58,000 enroll­ments.

Start­ing in Jan­u­ary and Feb­ru­ary 2012, Stan­ford will offer sev­en new cours­es, and they’re all open for enroll­ment today. Here’s the new list (and don’t for­get to browse through our col­lec­tion of 400 Free Online Cours­es):

Com­put­er Sci­ence 101
Soft­ware Engi­neer­ing for SaaS
Human Com­put­er Inter­faces
Nat­ur­al Lan­guage Pro­cess­ing
