    A friend of mine just sent me this... unfortunately they don't seem to have a main page with all of the courses (each course has its own page), but if you scroll to the bottom, you'll find a list of all of the other courses. Most aren't game related, but interesting either way.

    I've been taking the AI class currently running and it is A+. I see no reason not to do this. Looks like they also have an algorithms class.

    There's a lot of videos from Stanford on iTunesU (all free), including a full course on objc/iOS development that's really worth watching for anyone just getting into objc or iOS. MIT have videos on there too covering linear algebra, calculus, algorithms...

    Also, whilst not dev related, the "My Top-Secret Codebreaking during World War II" talk is really interesting. It's given by Captain Jerry Roberts, one of the Bletchley park workers.
