Stanford is offering an AI class online but with a twist. Unlike other offerings which have notes/videos for online users – for this course, you can take and turn in the assignments, quizzes, exams etc. and be graded. At the end of it you won’t get a Stanford certificate/credit, but “You will receive a letter of completion from the instructors which will include information on how well you did.” So you won’t get official recognition from Stanford, but a private grade by the instructors and will be graded according to the same criteria as Stanford students. More of a personal assessment rather than university credit.
