After successfully offering several courses online for free this year, Stanford is offering several more courses online next year, some in cooperation with UC Berkeley.

Many are relevant (directly or tangentially) to techies. Here's a link to the Computer Security class, but there are links to the other classes at the bottom of the page. Some do require prior mathematical or programming knowledge.

An update on this received a follow-up email from the organisers of last year's 'Introduction to AI' class informing me about a new venture providing free education on computer science topics.

At the moment you can sign up for a CS101 course, and a follow-up to the previous AI class, but they intend to run courses on various other core CS topics during the year (e.g. operating systems, networks, distributed systems, algorithms etc).

It seems that the momentum is increasing MIT will be offering a course on circuits and electronics during the spring semester.

Obviously many universities have offered materials online before, but there seems to be a shift towards full, moderated courses.

Same here. I think they probably underestimated the demand (and possibly the work that goes into setting this kind of thing up) and are now scaling to meet it. Some of the courses offered by Stanford during the fall semester went through similar growing pains.

The 'Model Thinking' course has now posted the first few lectures as a preview.
