Stanford is offering a bunch of free online courses which run for about a semester. I have followed the Machine Learning course from Andrew Ng, and it was very well delivered. I think quite a few among us can use these classes.

Check out the list of the course towards the end of this page: www.venture-class.org

Note: This announcement is not directly related to OR, but I think quite a few courses involve OR techniques and methodologies, which would be of interest here, hence this post.

[Update]: The above URL is now defunct. The new URL for courses is: http://www.coursera.org/

For the sake of completeness, Coursera offers contents by UMich, Stanford, and UCB. Besides, there are two other "players" in the field now: Udacity and MITx. [Some guys keep track of the recent developments here: http://www.class-central.com/]

Thanks for the link. Boyd's courses on convex optimization are fantastic. I think I have viewed them from either youtube or some other source before.
