The massive open online course provider Udacity unveiled a redesigned website on Wednesday, highlighting the company's recent focus on corporate training. In an accompanying blog post, the founder Sebastian Thrun also announced the start of two new courses, developed in partnership with Cloudera and Salesforce, that "address the widening job skills gap in the U.S. and around the world."
Udacity has displayed a growing interest in corporate training, such as its inexpensive master's degree in computer science created with the Georgia Institute of Technology, after experimenting with online courses in remedial education last year. Udacity last redesigned its website in early 2013.
