Many of these MOOCs are introductory. Stephen Boyd's upcoming Convex Optimization MOOC is not.

It stands out among the rest of these, in my mind. Boyd co-authored THE BOOK on optimization, and this class bills itself as a graduate-level course. I will be participating in this.

Don't forget "statistical Learning" from Stanford and "Artificial Intelligence" from Udacity (I'm trying to work on it over the break)

I took one of Udacitys "data science" ones (Hadoop) and was a bit disappointed with the extremely low level, but I might check out the MongoDB one. Also Weka and computational methods.

The "Statistical Learning" class bills itself as introductory, but I'm looking forward to getting to learn under Hastie and Tibshirani.

I'm taking "Discrete Inference and Learning in Artificial Vision", Although artificial vision is outside of my area of research, I want more experience applying complex models to data.

Which of these courses uses Python (rather than R) as its primary teaching language?

Thanks for sharing. Intro to Data Science and Data Wrangling with MongoDB seem pretty interesting.
