If you’re crazy about the world of technology and you want to make it your career, Udacity makes that very easy for you. Udacity is the MOOC platform which is specialized in ICT related courses and with a obvious focus on professional development. In fact, Udacity has designed several programs called nano degrees that combine parts of different courses, aiming to provide students with the skills they need in order to become a developer (frontend, backend, Android/iOS) or even a data analyst.
The Udacity app is the best way to keep up with these courses. It’s easy to use and has an attractive interface with some well-structured lessons, examples and exercises. It makes it very easy to find and choose courses, follow them with- or without an internet connection and see how you are getting on in all your nano degrees.
The news-feed style interface is divided into categories, and is, without doubt, one of its strong points. The information in the course summary sheet is detailed enough for you to be able to decide if the course is right for you or not in just a few seconds. You can watch videos offline and keep your progress synchronized with other devices, all of which add up to a great learning experience.
It’s a MOOC platform focusing only on programming and data analysis; so you won’t find courses in botany or DIY. It would also be nice if the tags within the course summary sheets were clickable.
