Web courses related to my research interests

I have collected a list of course web pages that are relevant to CLAIR.

My goal was to list courses that tend to:

(1) are taught by some of the best people in the respective areas
(2) make their reading lists and notes publicly available
(3) cover the state of the art in topics relevant to clair

Here is the result:

http://clair.si.umich.edu/clair/clair/courses.html

Please send me suggestions for other sites to add. I am particularly
looking for more good courses on Machine Translation, Statistical NLP,
Text Mining, Information Retrieval, Biological NLP, and Graph/Network
Analysis.
