from high school


Udacity is a digital university providing free courses mainly focusing on Mathematics Phisics and Computer Sciences. The courses are divided in three difficulty levels and are “open enrollment”, meaning that users can sign up at any time and complete the course at their own pace without homework or quiz deadlines. Users can enroll in as many classes as desired.
Udacity’s "hexamesters" are 7 weeks long. After each hexamester there is a one week break before the release of the next round of courses. Each class consists of 6 week-long units. The seventh week will have some bonus material and a final exam. Each unit is composed of many videos. Most are about 2 or 3 minutes long, and they are usually followed by a quiz or programming assignment. All videos in the courses have captions and each course also has a wiki that contains the course content in written form.
Completing a class, students get a certificate signed by the instructor. These certificates are recognized by major technology companies who are actively recruiting from the Udacity student body.
In addition to providing free higher education for students around the world, Udacity is also poised to connect students with job opportunities. Udacity's Career Placement Program connects students to the partner employers directly.
