Site to learn new skills
« on: March 21, 2015, 10:34:37 pm »
I'm not sure if anyone is aware of these sites but they are great for online learning.  There are a wide variety of courses which include programming languages, and artificial intelligence.  I saw one that was aimed at learning c# using the unity engine.  Many of these courses are offered by professors from many of the notable universities around.

These are just a couple that I can remember of the top of my head.

Just thought I would share this. Looks like there are a lot of pros here but maybe there is something here to help you along your journey. 

I hope this is useful to someone.

Thanks Calhoone, I'm sure they will come in useful.

I'll certainly give the PHP section at Code Academy a go.

May be interesting to become an instructor on one of these online sites.  But what would be considered a formal education in chatbots?   ;)  Computer Science?  :)  Information Systems?  ;D Cognitive Science?  ^-^ or perhaps life experience is enough?
