Udacity Introduces 'Nanodegree' Credentials

June 17, 2014

The online education provider Udacity says it will soon offer career-focused "nanodegrees," stackable credentials designed to be completed in no more than a year. Udacity will initially launch four programs, with the goal of preparing learners for careers such as a back- or front-end web developer, data analyst or iOS mobile developer. The first round of nanodegrees is funded by a $1.5 million investment from AT&T, which will also offer 100 paid internships to high-performing students, a Udacity spokeswoman said in a blog post.
