Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, have picked up support but also encountered criticism since my last blog about them in November. The Washington Post reports that Stanford will partner with the nonprofit edX, founded by MIT and Harvard, to develop an open-source Web platform for free online college courses offered by those two universities as well as other prestigious schools like Georgetown. Stanford has no plans to offer its own courses on the platform but will help develop a platform that edX says it hopes will be the "Linux of learning." Read more
Stanford University - Coursera Network
New! Learn the engineering skills needed to build a technology startup from the ground up. The first half of the course will cover modern software engineering principles with a focus on mobile HTML5 development, taught via 5-10 minute video lectures with in-class questions, programming assignments, and quizzes. Guest lecturers from top Silicon Valley startups will bring these concepts to life with real engineering problems from their work. In the second half, you will apply these concepts to develop a simple command line application, expose it as a webservice, and then integrate other students' command line apps and webservices together with yours to create an open- source mobile HTML5 app as a final project. Lectures will continue in the second half, but will be focused on the design, marketing, and logistical aspects of creating and scaling a startup. No other homework will be given in the second half to permit full focus on the final project. Next sessions: Jun 17th 2013 (10 weeks long). Explore more about this exciting course here
