All Sorts of Awesome

This is all sorts of awesome (from Alex Tabarrok at Marginal Revolution).  

Key highlights:

  • 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.
