Free online education opportunity from Stanford University

Stanford University has been offering a number of their advanced classes online. I’ve signed up for their Model Thinking course, which starts next month, with Dr. Scott Page.

I’ve benefited from e-learning programs presented by Dr. Page before and his presentations are excellent. Although the material can be complex, Dr. Page is a model for how to make such information accessible in an online environment. I’ve also read two of his books and his thinking has had a significant influence on my thinking in a nubmber of areas, such as software design, software development methodology, management practices, and education reform.

You may be interested in several other courses being offered. Scroll to the bottom of the Model Thinking page for more.

This will be the first course offered by Stanford University in which I will have participated. I’ll post about the experience once completed.
