Stanford’s free online iPhone & iPad course is baaack — with peer-to-peer help
June 20, 2012
Stanford’s popular free iPhone and iPad apps online course opens June 25 with a new feature: help and inspiration 24×7 via Piazza, a peer-to-peer social learning site — a first for Stanford online courses and on iTunes U.
Whazzit: your questions are answered by course instructors (“course captains”) and by fellow online learners.
When: June 25 to Aug. 27. Registration opens June 19 and ends July 6.
Bonus: The first 1,000 to register may have their own apps — the final project of the course — evaluated for special showcasing on Stanford’s iTunes U site.
Factoid: many students already use the Piazza social learning platform.
Downside: That’s free Piazza, not free pizza.
