Free Computer Science Course From Harvard University Extension School


Recently, Harvard University has joined hands  with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)  to provide impetus to on-campus teaching and, more importantly, make courses from both schools available to people around the world for free.

This free online course  from Harvard University Extension School  provides an intensive introduction to computer science. The course teaches students how to think more carefully and how to solve problems more effectively. Problem sets involve extensive programming in C as well as PHP and JavaScript.

This free online computer science course is an introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science. Topics include algorithms (their design, implementation, and analysis); software development (abstraction, encapsulation, data structures, debugging, and testing); architecture of computers (low-level data representation and instruction processing); computer systems (programming languages, compilers, operating systems, and databases); and computers in the real world (networks, websites, security, forensics, and cryptography).

It gives learners free access to prerecorded classroom lectures , and you can access Harvard Extension School’s Open Learning Initiative by clicking here.
