I've never seen a university use .org's. Seems like a scam or email bait.
EDIT: I looked a little more into it and it seems legitimate.
Awesome, I just finished reading the "about the course" sections and decided to enroll for Cryptography and Technology Enterpreneurship
It 's been a long time since the last time I was on a uni course and I 'm really going to have fun with these two
It's legit, it was making the headlines a few days ago on some reputable tech blog. Great share!
The only problem is that it wont count as college credit.
MIT also has many of their lectures online for free.
You can find them all here: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/
Alot of the CS and engineering courses have all their lecture videos on there (alot of kids don't go to class and watch from their dorm/apartment instead).
The computer science courses look great... here's where I wish we had a 36 hour day as opposed to the 24 hours.
Tbh i don't think this really matters as the whole point of it is to learn something and if you get enough from the course/course's along with your other skills you could be making far more than ANY employer would offer you,
Good share, thanks
I signed up for a course about a month ago. The course is set to start in January. Can't believe I'm going back to school after 40 years. LOL
wow this is amazing. I'm going to look thru them and choose a few. this is going to be a nice opportunity for a lot of people.

Imagine how awesome if someone created a legit online college that provided free courses that counted towards a degree
With ads+email submit the college could still make a profit and keep expanding. Instead of directly hosting the vids on their website,they can host them on youtube,and earn money though adsense as well,by becoming a youtube partner.
Something like this already exists: http://www.khanacademy.org/ - started by an MIT grad, offers courses in almost everything, check it out.
Its close,but they don't offer a college degree.
Forget about degrees man, most important = knowledge
But a degree still has bragging rights.
Only if it's from a top school (in which case there's additional value: networking, connections).
Otherwise it's a load of debt for stuff you could have learned on your own (unless we're talking lab sciences) + 4 years of partying, which admittedly was very fun
i signed up for 8 classes.
everything offered is extremely relevant to my job and my side business
will they accept abroad students / sign ups ? im pretty interested in the entrepreneurship one
they do accept its all virtual by email & name submit... PERFECT
Awesome Share buddy thanks .. Forwarded to few of my buddies and will enroll myself and couple of programs. Thanks
