Georgia Tech plans to offer a MOOC-based online Master’s degree in Computer Science

Next January, the Georgia Institute of Technology plans to offer a master’s degree in computer science through massive open online courses…

Georgia Tech, which has one of the country’s top computer science programs, plans to offer a MOOC-based online master’s degree in computer science for $6,600 — far less than the $45,000 on-campus price. However you can take the same classes for free if you don’t want the degree.

What is MOOC?

A massive open online course (MOOC) is an online course aimed at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs are a recent development in distance education. (wikipedia)

The program includes courses in Software Development Methodologies and Software Testing as well as more typical programming classes, web tech, embedded programming, cloud computing, and network courses. Cost is very reasonable.
