One more reason American education is the best in the world- it has a big heart.
Stanford just announced free courses starting from Jan 2012- and they are online (so no visa blues) and free( as in speech and free as in beer) and just the same as actual courses (yes , the homework will have to be done, and the dog cannot eat the homework)
MIT meanwhile has 2000 courses at http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/
– but I liked Stanford’s minimal , clutter free interface ( I read Steve Jobs biography- the interface hangover continues).
Hurrah for Stanford!
MIT needs to DESIGN their free online courses website and maybe do more search engine optimization at
