Thanks to Paul Stimpson on the Surrey LUG mailing list for pointing the
MIT are launching the first course in their new e-learning programme
designed to bring education free to the masses. It’s a course in
electronic circuits and design and begins on March 5th. This is a
trial and at this stage does not require any attendance or for proof
of identity to be shown. It is examined online and results in an
MIT-branded certificate for successful students. The only obligations
are to complete the course and exams in the time frame specified and
to agree to the University honour code (not to cheat).
The course runs
for 13 weeks (March 5th until June 8th) and requires a time investment
of approximately 10 hours per week.
