If you feel like a structured type learning approach covering basics and more.

I have no idea if it going to be any good but I am hopeful.

It's awesome.  I'm signed up for the second class, but I never get into it.  I think it's because I incompleted the first class.  As soon as I could download all the videos and homeworks I just grabbed everything and never went back.  :-(  Guess I need to re-take it.

It's definitely dry, but it's still REALLY good.  And you get a very solid foundation on crypto, with specific programming implementations.

I remember hearing about this a while ago.

I might just have to check it out this time!

Thanks!

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

I'm friends with Dan Boneh. I would highly recommend his course and the second course he is also offering in a few weeks. Dan is an expert on fully homomorphic encryption and one of his grad students actually created the first fully functional system:

In my opinion, Dan is one of the top five cryptologists in the world right now and it is really amazing that he committed to teach these courses. I'd also recommend David Evan's class on Udacity:

Dave is one of the co-founders of Udacity and I believe to be a very engaging lecturer. Udacity and coursera have a very different approach to education. Coursera is more like a traditional university with start and end dates for courses and a weekly schedule of content. Udacity is open 24/7 with short 5 minute snippets with quizzes in between and homework assignments at the end of each section.

I'd watch Peter Norvig's ted lecture, which was the inspiration for Udacity to get a better idea:

http://www.ted.com/talks/peter_norvig_the_100_000_student_classroom.html

For Boneh's course, it is nearly identical to his for credit class for Stanford's SCPD master's program: http://scpd.stanford.edu/search/publicCourseSearchDetails.do?method=load&courseId=11792. Probably in the next five or six, years it will be offered for full college credit.
