Okay, so, picking a schedule!

There are 24 lecture videos for the class, so what I'd like to aim to do is start with lecture #1 next week (11/2), do two a week on Mondays and Wednesdays, take a break around Christmas and New Year's and finish up the first week in February.

I'm thinking that if there are enough people who have different scheduling needs, we could try to split it up something like this:

a) Twice a week, start in November - finish early February
b) Once a week, start in November - finish end of April
c) Twice a week, start in January - finish March/April

Then also if you had to jump in and out at any point, you could pick back up with whichever pace fit best.

The tricky part about learning on your own, at least for me, is the lack of dates to have to stick to and the lack of anything prodding me to put down the novel, turn off the CSI rerun, etc. and do some serious reading or lecture-watching. So you want enough flexibility that you don't get overwhelmed, but not so much that you get... underwhelmed.

Thoughts?

Taking advantage of DW's new community sticky feature:

This is a community for people following along with MIT 6.00: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming, which is part of their OpenCourseWare project; the lectures, reading assignments and problem sets are all free and available online. The goal is to do a first run-through from November 2009 - February 2010, although obviously you can go at your own pace, and it would be great to muster up enough people to support each other on different timeframes (one lecture a week or starting after the new year).

Feel free to join in at any point! No programming experience necessary.

ETA: If you don't have a dreamwidth account but would like one, check out [site community profile] dw_codesharing or drop me a line.
