CS Unplugged - Carnegie Mellon
Computer Science Unplugged is a series of learning activities that reveals a little-known secret: computer science isn't really about computers at all. Unplugged teaches principles of computer science such as binary numbers, algorithms and data compression through games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons and lots of running around. The great ideas behind computer science are brought into the open when we leave behind the details of particular computer systems.
Unplugged is suitable for people of all ages, from elementary school to university, and from many countries and backgrounds. Unplugged has been used around the world for over fifteen years, in classrooms, science centers, homes, and even for holiday events in a park!

Busting the Biggest PC Myths
We expose the bad advice that wastes your time and money. By Gregg Keizer
Harvard CS E1 Class
An oustanding series of lectures on technology through the Harvard Extension School. This course is all about understanding: understanding what's going on inside your computer when you flip on the switch, why tech support has you constantly rebooting your computer, how everything you do on the Internet can be watched by others, and how your computer can become infected with a worm just by being turned on. Designed for students who use computers and the Internet every day but don't fully understand how it all works, this course fills in the gaps. Through lectures on hardware, software, the Internet, multimedia, security, privacy, website development, programming, and more, this course "takes the hood off" of computers and the Internet so that students understand how it all works and why. Through discussions of current events, students are exposed also to the latest technologies.
