There's Quantum Information Science ( ) on edX.


- It's an MIT graduate class (this could be a con if you are a beginner in other areas and not just in quantum computation).

- It's taught by Isaac Chuang (of Nielsen & Chuang, the leading textbook on quantum computing) and Peter Shor (of the Shor factoring algorithm, the most famous quantum algorithm).


- Shor does 90% of the lectures, and he is... not a good teacher.

- When I took it, there was almost zero support (e.g., when there were bugs in the problem sets).

I'm glad I took it, because it induced me to learn a bunch of material I had been wanting to learn for a while, but compared to what it could have been it was pretty disappointing.
