      ACM Learning Center (you'll need to join the ACM for $99 a year, but it comes with safari, books 24x7 and skillsoft course access)

      Find Courses by Topic | MIT OpenCourseWare | Free Online Course Materials has a lot of computer science courses.
      While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

        Some feedback from the pre and post course survey for a course I've just completed:

        A Comparison of Online MOOC Versus On Campus Course Delivery | the augmented trader

        The course was run simultaneously online and in the campus which makes for some interesting reading!

          Interesting. I'm very impressed by the one I'm doing (if a little out of my depth). The thing I do find frustrating is that, if you hit a problem with one of the programming assignments, it's very difficult to discuss it in the forums as you're not allowed to post your code or even any real detail of your approach to the problem. If you're stuck, there's no real way out.

                      You need to look in detail. The Data Science course is 9 modules at $49 a time + $49 for the capstone project.

                      Compared to the open university its a bargain but its not $49.
