Free Open online Courses from Stanford Uty on Computer Networking and Energy / batteries ..

Dear all,

This Free and Open online course from Stanford on 

1). Computer Networking and 2) Solar Cells, Fuel Cells and Batteries, is starting on Oct 8 2012. If you are interested pl register for the 3 month course ( or 6 months, not clear..) weekly assignments and submissions..

Computer Networking   This is an introductory course on computer networking, specifically the Internet. It focuses on explaining how the Internet works, ranging from how bits are modulated on wires and in wireless to application-level protocols like BitTorrent and HTTP. It also explains the principles of how to design networks and network protocols. Students gain experience reading and understanding RFCs (Internet protocol specifications) as statements of what a system should do. The course grounds many of the concepts in current practice and recent developments, such as net neutrality and DNS security.

Solar Cells, Fuel Cells and Batteries  This course focuses on the operating principles and applications of emerging technological solutions to the energy demands of the world. We will begin with discussing the scale of global energy usage and requirements for possible solutions. Basic physics and chemistry of solar cells, fuel cells, and batteries will be discussed in quantitative detail. We will explore performance issues, including economics, from the ideal device to the installed system. Finally, we will end with the promise of materials research for providing next generation solutions.

This is part of their MOOC, large learning platforms ..

Life is a long learning process.
