Free Stanford Courses

As I have mentioned before, I am a big fan of Stanfords online efforts of putting lectures/courses in places like iTunes for free.

They have now announced that they will be offering several of the courses fully online, for free - this includes lectures (in real time) and all the coursework, which will be marked and graded, and all students will be informed on how they rank (in terms of percentiles i guess). The course doesn't get any official Stanford credit, but will get a "Statement of Accomplishment" (whatever that is).

The list of courses currently about to be offered this coming academic year is here

Having a degree in Artificial Intelligence, I would love to sign up for the AI courses to refresh (its been several years since uni and AI has changed a lot), but not sure I could find the time to keep up with further weekly commitments and coursework, but will investigate further.
