What are the best curated syllabi for learning something new on the internet?

Someone recently pointed me to this great basic web coding syllabus and it left me hungry for more. What are other great online syllabi that guide you through learning a new subject in a structured way? I'm most interested in examples that are free to view/use (even if they suggest using other learning sources that are not) and that draw on multiple different sources and providers like this one, rather than syllabi with content all from a single provider.

MIT OpenCourseware

On a related note: I like to go to university bookstore websites and select the classes I'm interested in and see the textbooks they are using for the course. If I find something that's super interesting I'll just go onto half.com or Amazon and buy a past edition because its WAY cheaper.

I like Stanford's syllabi search, Coursera, Open Yale, and MIT OCW.
