learning online

A little while back I was talking to a friend who works at UC Davis, who mentioned that MIT was releasing a bunch of their courses on-line for free (OpenCourseWare). Of course, for us nerds, this is like giving people access to the holy land of computery goodness. The first course release? None other than introductory course “Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs”. One of the oldest (older than me) classes that MIT has on the subject. There are 10 lectures broken apart in 20 files (a/b), roughly 27 gigs of data to watch. http://www.archive.org/details/mit_ocw_sicp

Since this, MIT and a handful of other Universities have put out a ton of video lectures on-line for your general browsing pleasure. I highly recommend browsing around and downloading things. So far I’m only partially through the MIT course, and I have a good deal of other math and programming lectures to get through.
