Below are four of my (150!) browser tabs opened, that I oddly had in sequence.
From left to right:
Quite a reasonable site, currently invite-only. My worry is my pronounciation will be crap though. I do wish that it did not have to use Flash to accomplish things though.
Nice interface, annoying that it uses YouTube to host videos as that meant I had to whitelist YouTube in Flashblock.
I picked this course as one of the other ones I wanted to do had already closed. I suspect I'll eventually do each of the courses they have on offer. One nice thing is that courses run every 8 weeks or so.
I'm using Firefox beta, so I'm always running something fairly fast and modern too.
I'm not a fan of this interface at all, which is why I find it hard to come back to the site each week. I'm not sure exactly why though, since it uses WebM and no Flash. Hurray!!
Either way, I'm doing the Machine Learning class. I tried this last time it was offered and got to week 5 — same week I'm on now — and then I got suddenly busy IRL, so was not able to complete the course.
Unlike Udacity, courses run at set times and you have to do the work on the required dates in order to get the statement of attainment, which can be hard when you are juggling multiple things
Keep in mind, these are just the extra things I have decided to learn. I'm also learning more about Django, Puppet and Python in my work everyday. Plus I'm actually doing a Spanish course in real life too. Oh, and I have a job and I go out. I'm generally actually pushed for time.
Which probably explains why I have not been keeping up with the blog. It isn't because I hate you, although it might be too ;-) , I'm just busy.
