Will the lectures start to carry ads? This could start to generate them a nice income stream.
Have enough courses and you might as well stay on the dole in the UK and take courses like this.

Mrs Imp did the recent Artificial Intelligence course from Stanford which someone mentioned on here. She only did GCSE maths 15 years ago, and she found it really challenging but got through it and enjoyed it (I think). Possibly a sign of her stubbornness. I've just signed up to this MIT course. If it is anything like the AI course, it will be good.

Does this have any real value beyond the self-satisfaction of doing this course rather than a crossword for a reasonably educated person with spare time?
Probably a future business opportunity in offering local third-party invigilation services for the exams of various onine courses/learning.
I think this sort of learning is the future once you can be sure of the rigour of the exams. Clicking a box, basically says, 'I agree not to cheat' isn't going to cut it.
Once there's a market in online courses students should vote with their feet and lecturers/providers will have to work a lot harder towards producing a decent course when a lot have got away with a lecture consisting of reading aloud a ten year old projector slide and calling it a course.

I got a hyperlink to click through. If you gave an email address and a username, then try logging in. Guy in my office was waiting for a response but got on the site ok today. Think you can still register. First homework is not due until 16th March.

That's basically hwy I never bothered with uni - for the areas I'm interested in half a brain and a textbook will suffice. It's not so easy for the arts, but for sciences with fixed and known knowns it seems a logical progression to me. I'd happily pay money to do a degree this way and logically there's no reason why it should cost a lot since replication is cheap.

I've just finished S2E3 so far. It's the "sign" (things like negative power) that's causing me most grief so far. I do think that the circuit construction software could come in very handy from a hobbyist point of view.
