Hi guys. If you have not already joined the edX bandwagon, there's a great upcoming physics course: https://www.edx.org/courses/MITx/8.02x/2013_Spring/about Hope to see you there!

    AWSOME! iv'e watch the many of the lectures '07 lectures already but actually participating in the course will ensure i actually 'do the homework'. Walter Lewin is fantastic, (post a comment so i can give you a medal)

    Yes, it will be great. This is old ground for me but it's good to go over it again.

    They are similar, to be sure. I've done courses on both sites--as well as udacity.com--all are great. But I would say that the edX courses are bit more evolved. Here are a couple of articles about massive open online courses (MOOCs): http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/04/education/edlife/massive-open-online-courses-are-multiplying-at-a-rapid-pace.html?pagewanted=all http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/27/opinion/sunday/friedman-revolution-hits-the-universities.html

    So what are the benefits if we ask such a course?

    Mostly it is that you learn a lot. What you turn that into afterwards is up to you.

    Plus, I think you get a certificate of completion.

    Aravind, go and look at the site yourself. You will see that you do NOT have to supply a physical address. Just an e-mail address.

    I personally prefer only Udacity for we can take our time to complete.

    Did you click on the link? Read everything there. It answers the questions about text books and materials.

    There should be a method to store questions/things on Openstudy so that you can refer back to it later.

    I assume the lecture watching is to be at any time during the week, and the 2002 lecture videos will be used? (The FAQ doesn't enlighten me here, I *have* looked). Also, at the moment I am finding secondary school insufferably boring for having read years earlier the concepts being covered now. Does this problem scale to university (that is, with enrolling in this course, will I suffer the same boredom later on)? This is purely pragmatic, I find the subject matter fascinating.

    Whether doing this course now will result in you being bored later, which of us can say? As for the lecture materials, it is likely that they will be reworked somehow, as they were for 6.002x. Time will tell.
