Advanced Entrepreneurship sounds interesting, but I'm already taking 13 credits at a CC and working full time. If it transfers, though...

Can someone link me to the other free courses the other top-flight universities are providing?

I'll definitely be looking into taking a class or two, preferably ones that offer certificates. Does anyone have a list or do you just have to click on each class to see if certificates are being offered?

Sounds interesting, but after reading it damn it's intense. I guess that's why it's an advanced class.10 hours a week for 10 weeks, while also cutting into my winter break? No thank you.

I'll probably take Sports and Society from Duke in April. Finance (Michigan) and Android Apps (Illinois) caught my eye too, but they haven't announced dates yet.

I would take it too but i don't have the time with my own courseload. Definitely looking into it for the future though, if they still offer it. Let us know your impressions on the class, if its not too much of a hassle.

I like what MIT is doing/did. They posted videos of their lectures on youtube. They're incredibly useful for some 200-300 level courses. I just used one of the videos earlier to brush up on some linear algebra Laughing

I'm taking programming methodology(java) to get ready for grad school. Good class, funny professor. Assignments are tough but make you use your brain. I pretty much recommend online classes purely for personal knowledge.
