    Default Here's all 12 free online Stanford computer science courses

    The AI course wasn't the only one. There's 12 (plus seminars), and the content is freely available online. There is also an outstanding database design class available. The DB class had graded assignments, a midterm, and a final -- and 90,000 students!!

    Goal: TESC BA Computer Science (switched from BSBA CIS)

    After completing all but 4 gen eds for the BSBA, in June 2013 I switched to BA CS to go full-STEM and due to life and career I am now slow-rolling it taking 1-2 courses per semester until complete. Current ETA Fall 2014.

    Completed:
    AAS Computer Science, CCAF
    CLEP: A&I Lit, CCM, College Math, Fin Acc, Marketing, Mgmt, Microecon
    DSST: Public Speaking, Business Ethics, Finance
    ALEKS: College Algebra, Trig, Stats
    Classes: ENC-102, LAW-201, ECO-111, ACC-102, LIB-495, COS-213, COS-241

    Next: Computer Architecture, Calc I

    Remaining:
    CLEP: 3x gen eds
    Classes: Calc I/II, Discrete Math, Operating Systems, Capstone

    Wife & step-son pursuing state emergency management certification & Big 3 options.

    No credit for these right?

    Nope. The DB class gave a "statement of accomplishment" to 6,500 people after the 9 week (or so) class. I still think its an incredible service and I also think this is a sign of things to come. Alternatives to college certification are coming. The MacArthur Foundation (major NPR funder) is funding ($2 million!) a project to develop "digital badges" that will provide evidence of learning achievements. My best guess is they are trying to come up with something like the Khan Academy badges, but for education in general? Not sure but it sounds like a lot of people are starting to chip away at the wall. I suspect it will still take well over a decade for anything to be seriously considered.

    The digital badge thing sounds a little funny. Industry certifications are certainly important and have gained respect over the past 10 or 20 years. I think the regional accreditors should innovate a little and provide some sort of CLEP exam equivalent at the graduate level. There is already a delivery channel for CLEP so why not just ride those rails? I could see taking HRM5000, intro to HR management at the grad level as a CLEP. The entire MBA, minus a capstone could be CLEPped out of.
