ArsDigita University (ADU) : Computer Science Course http://www.aduni.org/ ArsDigita University (ADU) : Computer Science Course Materials (free)
ADU was a one-year, intensive post-baccalaureate program in Computer Science based on the undergraduate course of study at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

This site features Computer Science lectures, coursework, and exams from ArsDigita University.
