One of the most amazing innovations in online learning over the past few years has been the growth and development of massive open online courses, better known as MOOCs. Generally speaking, MOOCs are courses made available, free of charge, for unlimited participation by any and all students interested in the subject matter. Computer Science Online features course titles and links to some of the most popular computer science MOOCs.
Given the recent appearance of MOOCs in the virtual world, it’s not surprising that one of the most popular academic subjects for MOOC classes is computer science. There are dozens of courses available across the breadth of computer-related topics. MOOCs are often offered by highly prestigious colleges and universities like Harvard, Stanford and, most predominantly, MIT, and taught by the same professors and instructors that teach them on their famous campuses.‹ Back to Resources
