This is from one of them:

‘ve got to mention I haven’t tried this yet, merely found out about it. But if any of you did try it, please drop me a few lines.

Cheers,

    Coursera is free … for now. Expect it to become a paid service over the long term.

    Hi there!

    Would you care to give Udacity spin? http://www.udacity.com/

    I believe that we have better structured courses (although clearly fewer). Also, ping me on IM if you have any issues since I now work there (that’s why I’m spreading the gospel :-p)
