Default Free online Computer Science courses from Stanford University

Something I stumbled on a few days ago. Right now there are three courses you can sign up for:
Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
Introduction to Databases
Machine Learning
The courses will start on October 10th and end on December 18th. They're free and open to anyone interested.
Personally I've signed up because they coincide with subjects that are going to be part of my actual Computer Science studies over next two semesters. Having some advance knowledge never hurts. :-)

When I read the thread title I didn't suppose they were full-blown courses, thanks a lot.

I intend to take advantage of this, though I'm being lazy lately, and I have to straighten the whole of my job improving and training... Right now I think I'll lie down and read a little. :P

Seriously, do you know the enrollment deadlines? I can only find it for the AI course (10/9).

I think they all start the beginning of October.

Also, I'll pass this on - It's great! http://www.openculture.com/freeonlinecourses

I'm currently watching my way through this and it's great

They look interesting but they might go a bit over my head for now. I'm also in school for PC Repair right now.

The Database and Machine Learning courses are now accepting registrations. Seems not everyone who signed up to be notified when that happens received the notice.
