Coding together - open access education at its best

Stanford University offers a free online course titled Coding together - apps for iPhone and iPad. It started with downloadable lectures in iTunesU last year and this year the 10 week course has been supplemented with the learning platform Piazza aimed specifically at collaborative learning. The teacher posts lectures, syllabus, assignments, instructions etc and the students can post questions. Some 400 000 students are expected to enroll in the course and the idea is that your peers will help you out with difficult steps. Although I do not have the appropriate background as a programmer, I have nevertheless signed up for the course and will do my best to struggle along  anyway. It's historic! Since education in Sweden is open and gratis to EU citizens I hope that we may be allowed time to develop courses for iTunesU

BTW, Zemanta is working again, they apparently had some server problems last week. All the links, the image and the related articles referred to has been added with its help. Thanks you all Zemanta developers!
