The inaugural rendition of one online course has attracted a wide of range of advanced programmers from around the world. Two weeks ago, Dean of the College Katherine Bergeron announced via email that three Brown courses will soon be available online for free worldwide through the Coursera platform. But one computer science professor, Shriram Krishnamurthi, has already begun offering an online version of his course CSCI 1730: “Programming Languages.” Krishnamurthi said his decision to offer the course both in-person and on the web was independent of the University’s move toward online education. By the time the University announced its plans to offer online courses, Programming Languages already had 600 sign-ups.
