This is all sorts of awesome (from Alex Tabarrok at Marginal Revolution).
- Stanford computer science Prof offers online course on Artificial Intelligence.
- 160,000 people take it.
- On campus class size dwindles from 200 to 30, as more folks say they learn better from the online lecture.
- Professor decides to change the goal of his course from weeding out students to teaching them.
Now for the awesome part:
- That computer science professor quits Stanford and starts his own, online university, Udacity.
