This is something I saw and thought of people on this board spec those taking part in these beat battles... This is a 6 week course, for free, offered by Georgia Tech on Coursera.com. Meaning you can take part watching the video lectures, and not do the quizzes if you don't want to or whatever... Coursera, is honestly the shit; a site that pairs with some of the best colleges, and offers some of their online courses all for free... No prerequisites, either; don't think it would be too hard... Here is a quick syllabus for the course.....

Nice! Glad to see people are interested!. Looks to be a great course even if you only watch a couple videos here and there..

They have a pretty good msg board for the class, but def feel free to post any interesting topics brought up or questions... Seems like we will be doing some soundscape/field recording soon; sounds like fun!

That is odd if it is not letting you sign up?.. I have heard some instructors stop taking new students the day before the class officially starts but most of the courses allow you to enroll late...
