Thrun sees nanodegrees as key to ed democratization - Tara García Mathewson, Education Dive

Udacity founder Sebastian Thrun sees his short, online "nanodegree" programs bringing higher education into the 21st century. The Next Web reports that nanodegrees are designed to take six to nine months to finish and cost a flat $200 per month, with coursework completable at any time and graded on demand. A new nanodegree announced last week in partnership with Google teaches advanced skills to Android developers, and Thrun told TNW that it will definitely leave students ready for hire. http://www.educationdive.com/news/thrun-sees-nanodegrees-as-key-to-ed-democratization/400229/
