A professor at the University of Michigan has launched an introductory programming course that provides all of the learning materials to participants who may want to turn around and teach the subject themselves.

All of the materials for the course are provided to students under a Creative Commons license via the Open Michigan site, including syllabus, lecture videos, software and the course textbook, Python for Informatics, authored by Severance himself.
