Watch along with courses at actual University. CS and other subjects.
Berkely Webcast

OpenCourseWare MIT

Skimmed the CS parts of both programs back in the day. I have a BS in CS from a state college. Found both programs interesting and appreciate the very different approaches to the same subject.

Comment Opportunity not Mandate (Score 1) 328

Exposure and opportunity for continued study in many different fields including carpentry, plumbing, technology, and music would be good for people to experience. Exposing everyday people to code or algorithms or just simple computer systems like a Raspberry PI is cool. Even a chance to strum a guitar or pull a bow across a violin could be fun once or twice. Expecting people to master something without an interest is pretty much a waste of time.
