Audit Stanford Computer Science Courses Online For Free

Those who always wanted to tell people they studied at Stanford but lacked the grades or money to apply are in luck, because professors there have made some classes available online for free. Anyone can watch lectures and view class materials, submit assignments and receive feedback. Those who make the grade can receive “statements of accomplishments” from the instructor.

I Programmer reports classes include Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Databases, and that more than 100,000 people have signed up for a study group for one of the classes on Reddit.

Here are links to the classes:
