However, my interest was peeked when I saw that MIT (Massachusetts institute of technology) in the USA are offering a FREE on-line “Circuits and Electronics” course. The course is completely virtual and open to anyone from any country. All course materials and even virtual laboratories will be provided.
The nice thing about this idea, aside from the fact that it’s completely free of any costs to the student, is that you stand to gain a certificate of completion from a very well known and prestigious university.
You can find more details here: http://mitx.mit.edu/
The course starts March 5th 2012 and runs for approximately three months.
The only snag for some people may be the requirements:
"In order to succeed in this course, you must have taken an AP level physics course in electricity and magnetism. You must know basic calculus and linear algebra and have some background in differential equations. Since more advanced mathematics will not show up until the second half of the course, the first half of the course will include an optional remedial differential equations component for those who need it.
The course web site was developed and tested primarily with Google Chrome. We support current versions of Mozilla Firefox as well. The video player is designed to work with Flash. While we provide a partial non-Flash fallback for the video, as well as partial support for Internet Explorer, other browsers, and tablets, portions of the functionality will be unavailable."
However, since it’s free, what have you got to loose.
