Udacity’s New Degree Comes With A Money Back Guarantee | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it



For nearly two years, online education startup Udacity has offered a paid training course called a “Nanodegree” for people hoping to land technical jobs like software development. But the question was always whether students would find a job after finishing the course, which costs anywhere from $1,800 to $2,400.


To help erase such doubts, Udacity said Wednesday that it would create a new degree called Nanodegree Plus, which comes with a guarantee that students will find a job within six months. If not, the company will return 100% of tuition—a rarity in online education.
