Stanford to offer free class online

Fire up your computer: Enrollment is now open.

The democratization of education continues:

Stanford University will be offering the class “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” online for free this fall to anyone who wishes to take it. The class will include testing, quizzes, and two 75 minute lectures per week.

Ten-thousand have signed up so far.

Alex Tabarrok over at Marginal Revolution says that its a sign that professors are becoming obsolete, and that the markets are moving to superstar teachers who can teach hundreds or even thousands online.
