MITx prototype course opens for enrollment
In December, MIT announced the launch of an online learning initiative called “MITx.” Starting this week, interested learners can now enroll for free in the initiative’s prototype course — 6.002x: Circuits and Electronics.
Students can sign up for the course at mitx.mit.edu. The course will officially begin on March 5 and run through June 8.
Modeled after MIT’s 6.002 — an introductory course for undergraduate students in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) — 6.002x will introduce engineering in the context of the lumped circuit abstraction, helping students make the transition from physics to the fields of electrical engineering and computer science. It will be taught by Anant Agarwal, EECS professor and director of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL); Chris Terman, CSAIL co-director; EECS Professor Gerald Sussman; and CSAIL Research Scientist Piotr Mitros.
“We are very excited to begin MITx with this prototype class,” says MIT Provost L. Rafael Reif. “We will use this prototype course to optimize the tools we have built by soliciting and acting on feedback from learners.”
To access the course, registered students will log in at mitx.mit.edu, where they will find a course schedule, an e-textbook for the course, and a discussion board.
MITx 6002x Introduction
I would like to do this one too. Even though it sounds hard for someone like me who is Not Good at Math... But, I have already Enrolled in the Programming a Robotic Car corse at, http://www.udacity.com/cs#373. As well as the Building a Search Engine Course at, http://www.udacity.com/cs#101. And they both start on February 20th 2012. So, I think that I will have my Mind full! I very glad to see these good Collages joining the Online Education Genre, for sure!:)
