Corsi di informatica da Harvard Open Courses

Dopo il corso introduttivo all'informatica con Python del MIT, segnalo altri due corsi disponibili gratuitamente sul web. Questa volta si tratta del progetto Harvard Open Courses: Open Learning Initiative.

Bits: The Computer Science of Digital Information
Harry R. Lewis, PhD, Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science, Harvard University
This course focuses on information as quantity, resource, and property. We study the application of quantitative methods to understanding how information technologies inform issues of public policy, regulation, and law. How are music, images, and telephone conversations represented digitally, and how are they moved reliably from place to place through wires, glass fibers, and the air? Who owns information, who owns software, what forms of regulation and law restrict the communication and use of information, and does it matter? How can personal privacy be protected at the same time that society benefits from communicated or shared information?

Intensive Introduction to Computer Science
David J. Malan, PhD, Lecturer on Computer Science, Harvard University
This 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). 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.

Non ho avuto ancora tempo per dare un'occhiata ai due corsi, ma visto il nome dell'università dovrebbero essere di ottimo livello, e scorrendo i titoli delle lezioni gli argomenti sembrano interessanti.
Come nel caso del corso MIT, bisonga sapere l'inglese ad un livello almeno discreto, che non è una cosa che si può imparare in pochi giorni. Ma visto il livello dell'offerta formativa gratuita che si trova su internet mi sembra valga la pena di fare lo sforzo e mettersi a studiare questa lingua.
