Hey Guys,

I came across these free intro to CS classes from Stanford a few weeks back, and thought I would share. Some might not be all that relevant for computer graphics, but Ive found them to be a great resource in my self taught foray into programing.

Into to Machine Learning:

Intro to Databases:

Intro to CS on iTunesU:

MIT also offers some of their course materials free online (I saw this in the sticky thread). Here's a few from the list I thought would be relevant for CG:

Full video lectures, assignments and reading materials for:

-Introduction to Computer Science
-Computer Systems Engineering
-Performance Engineering of Software Systems
-Multi Core Programing Primer
-Introduction to Algorithms

Both Stanford and MIT are launching more free online courses in the next few months. The MIT courses will be launched under the name MITx, and will offer intro level CS classes starting "Spring 2012". There isn't much information yet about this.;item0

Here is the link to the Stanford online courses press release:
