About the Database Series of Courses “Databases” was one of Stanford’s three inaugural massive open online courses in the fall of 2011; it was offered again in MOOC format in 2013 and 2014. The course is now being offered as a set of smaller self–paced courses, which can be assembled in a variety of ways to learn about different aspects of databases. All of the courses are based around video lectures and/or video demos. Many of them include in–video quizzes to check understanding, in–depth standalone quizzes, and/or a variety of automatically–checked interactive programming exercises. Each course also includes a discussion forum and pointers to readings and resources. The courses are described briefly below, along with suggested pathways through them. Taught by Professor Jennifer Widom, the overall curriculum draws from Stanford’s popular Databases course. Why Learn About Databases Databases are incredibly prevalent they underlie technology used by most people every day if not every hour. Databases reside behind a huge fraction of websites; they’re a crucial component of telecommunications systems, banking systems, video games, and just about any other software system or electronic device that maintains some amount of persistent information. In addition to persistence, database systems provide a number of other …

    I liked the course as it allowed me to cover a lot of new things, and go deep in the topics I was interested in. The lectures were clear and engaging, and the tasks were though challenging but interesting. I think it is a really good course, as it’s leading you smoothly through the materials and motivating to accomplish most you can.

    School is Broken

    Jennifer Widom is a phenomenal MOOC teacher. She is able to condense a very complex subject matter into succinct videos including detailed examples. If you have never worked with databases or tables before, then it may be a bit difficult to pick up initially, but Widom does a great job of onboarding laypeople

    To date, this has been my favorite and most rewarding MOOC. I would honestly recommend it to everyone. I would argue that it is essential for anyone in a Computer Science or Engineering program, regardless of whether you want to specialize in databases or not.
