What is Udacity?
Udacity is a private online education provider. The Udacity online education platform provides practical tech-focused online courses in collaboration with leading tech companies. Udacity’s Nanodegree programs are co-created with industry leaders and are designed for lifelong learners. Udacity Nanodegree programs focus on jobs related to Software Development, Data Science, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence and more.
What is a Nanodegree and and how is it structured?
A Nanodegree is an online course. They are highly interactive with activities, such as quizzes and exercises, interspersed between short videos and interviews with instructors and industry experts. After a lesson, there will usually be a problem set with exercises for you to reaffirm that you have learned the material. Just as with the quizzes and videos, you can take them as many times as you like. You will learn by dealing with real-world projects built in partnership with top tier companies that lead to real skills mastery. One of the highlights around learning with Udacity is the capstone project included at the end of a program which you can add to your portfolio afterwards
While progressing through a Nanodegree, participants benefit from personalized mentoring for technical support, as well as detailed project reviews and feedback. Upon successful completion of a course, you will receive an official Udacity Nanodegree certificate of achievement.
How long will the Nanodegree program take?
The most Nanodeegres usually have a regular estimated time of 3-4 months. We offer our employees a six-month entry, since more time is usually needed and required varies depending on the complexity of the program and individual previous knowledge.
Can I complete the course at my own pace?
There are two start-dates per year. Participants begin the course together. In between, the participants’ time is at their own disposal and they can work independently and at their own pace. If you would like to start inmediately please contact your HR department or Bertelsmann University Team, if you’re lucky there might be a unused license that you can start with.
What is the program language?
The program language of all Udacity Nanodegree programs is English. All Udacity course videos have English subtitles.
