    Open Source Society University

    Path to a free self-taught education in Computer Science!


    Open Source Society University - Computer Science

    The OSSU curriculum is a complete education in computer science using online materials.
    It’s not merely for career training or professional development.
    It’s for those who want a proper, well-rounded grounding in concepts fundamental to all computing disciplines,
    and for those who have the discipline, will, and (most importantly!) good habits to obtain this education largely on their own,
    but with support from a worldwide community of fellow learners.

    It is designed according to the degree requirements of undergraduate computer science majors, minus general education (non-CS) requirements,
    as it is assumed most of the people following this curriculum are already educated outside the field of CS.
    The courses themselves are among the very best in the world, often coming from Harvard, Princeton, MIT, etc.,
    but specifically chosen to meet the following criteria.

    Courses must:

    22 Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology in Education

    The modern classroom has taken several steps forward in its evolution of the learning environment in the past 25 years. Many of the benefits that we have seen in this setting are due to the introduction of new technology options for students. Instead of having a single computer for a class to use or a laboratory environment for the entire school placed in one room, we can now help students learn at their table or desk with items issued to them directly.

    Our development of the Internet since 1989 has helped us to include more technological access to information in the modern classroom as well. If you grew up as an 80’s kid, then you had the A/V cart come into your class to watch educational videos and maybe have a snack. Now students get to play interactive learning games, compete against other students, and have their educational statistics tracked

    Programming Praxis | A collection of etudes, updated weekly, for the education and enjoyment of the savvy programmer

    [ I continue working at home. It’s no fun, and less productive than working in my office, but I’m coping. There remains much emergency work to be done related to moving all of our students online. I hope everyone is doing well during this time. ]

    A student recently asked for help on a beginning-programmer forum to write a Scheme program that finds the nth item in a linked list, mimicking the list-ref built-in function. He posted his code, which was awful; I won’t repost it here. Instead of engaging him, I sent a private email suggesting that he consult either his professor or his teaching assistant, as his posted code showed several misconceptions about Scheme. He wrote back, saying he was sure there was only one thing wrong with his code and I could easily point it out. I didn’t respond, as there was far more than one thing
