Several readers sent links about Stanford Engineering's SEE program, which is offering free (as in free beer) online robotics and AI engineering courses under a Creative Commons license. So far, they're offering Introduction to Robotics, Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning. They also offer courses in Fourier Transform and Linear Systems. Stanford is the latest school to follow the lead of MIT's Open CourseWare and CMU's open learning initiative, other programs which apply open source concepts to education. For more see the Stanford Engineering press release as well as Slasdot and DeviceGuru stories on the Stanford news.
