I got a scholarship for this, so I didn't pay. If you do not get a scholarship, do not take the course.
Waste of money and time. Better buy videos from Udemy if you want to learn something worth your money and time. They promise you money back guarantee if you do not get your job with a program called nanodegree plus and later refuse it by making absurd demands that you do this and that. I don't have more time to waste.
Plus even the program is not that helpful. Don't get fooled by their advertisements. Their support is awful. I thought I would get in contact with many companies through udacity degree but no one knows what udacity is. In fact all the interviews I went for no one recognizes them. Useless degree. They say money back guarantee so I thought they will guide me through but almost no support. They tell you to talk with more people and those people I have to find on my own. Yo...
The program takes you from the very basic to some challenging programming concepts and paradigms. The projects really get you to think and apply what you've learned. It stretches mentally in many ways. It also enforces good coding practices and you learn about different technologies, languages and frameworks. At the very end you get to choose a specialization in one of the other Nanodegrees, forcing you to complete the first project of chosen Nanodegree. The mentor review and support was also spot on, and you get a lot out of the project/code reviews. This is one of those things in life that you really get what you put into it. Sure, you can cruise by meeting minimum project specs and not dig deep, but that's your responsibility at the end of the day. If you're thinking about enrolling,...Read more
These are my honest review.
I enrolled in Deep Learning Nanodegree, Machine Learning Nanodegree, and Data Analyst Nanodegree. I was disappointed at all of them. The course seems to be disorganized. The instructors add many unnecessary information, which made the explanation less clear. When I had puzzles in the projects, it's hard to find someone to help me out. The mentors are previous Nanodegree students and not good enough to help you solve your puzzles.
No 1-to-1 appointment, no useful support, disorganized lecturers, overpriced tuition.
I would never return to Udacity again!
Udacity is a leading platform for education, mostly specialized in computer programming, web and mobile development, data science, machine learning, AI, Robotics, Self Driving car and more. I've taken online courses with Coursera, edX and others, but Udacity is very well organized and more practical to learn.
This course is great for people who have only a rudimentary, fundamental or no knowledge of coding - it leads you in nicely and is great for self-paced learners!
I had to take a lot of breaks in mine due to illness and other work commitments and they were very accomadating!
Great and fun tutorial videos with quizzes. It will be difficult not to understand the course.
Excellent Staff support.
Though the mentorship placement could be a miss or hit, and you can always request for a new one if you don't like your mentor, it's helpful.
Build awesome projects to cement and showcase your skills.
Excellent and thorough project reviewers.
Nanodegree can be pricy.
Udacity was like a breath of fresh air for me. I know a little html, css and python and I have been doin the intro to programming nano-degree since feb 2018 with no programming experience. MY MENTOR IS AWESOME THOUGH. ITS BEEN GREAT STUDYING WITH UDACITY.
I have used Udacity multiple times, as well as DataCamp, Pluralsight, and SoloLearn. Udacity's instructions are the least clear of all. I have to take the courses for the 2nd degree I'm getting, but everything is so poorly worded and explained that it's absurd. I'm paying other sites to teach me stuff I'm supposed to be learning because they can't make anything well thought out or explained. It's the most frustrating thing I've ever experienced in education.
I had interest in the android development and heard alot about udacity thats why i took it
The Developer Nanodegree 1 had two courses and 3 projeCTS in it
The First course was very well structured but the second was at high level and was missing links
The great thing about Udacity is projects the project 3 i submitted for 5 times and then it was accepted , it was frustrating but was equally rewarding
I would definitely recommend Udacity for android
Really intuitive learning platform
Awesome teachers who really care about the subject
Mentors ( 24 hour turnaround most of the time)
Awesome idea to made education affordable for the masses.
My mentor was awesome. Really helpful. Really sincere. People in tech are generally really cool!
Really cool Projects which make you go "wow...I can do that??"
Support is dismal. This is not anyone's fault at Udacity, but it's the massive online platform where everyone's busy or helping someone else. You have to wait a day or two to get an answer, so think wisely before asking your questions. Pray that you don't get stuck in a project because you will not get the help you expect from a traditional classroom. Discussion forums may or may ...
The Udacity system is riddled with issues and bugs, for one they are unwilling to acknowledge this fact. Issues that they do acknowledge, they lie about having fixed it. Another big lie they sell you is that the mentors will help you throughout the course, the fact is mentors don't do anything besides to tell you to go re-read the material, something you don't even need mentors for. On top of that, the material is of really poor quality. It is not organized but rather they jump from one topic to another without any sound logic. Overall, the quality of the service and support is the worst I have seen in this industry. A couple of Udemy courses can be purchased for a few dozen dollars which is far cheaper than the several hundred you have to pay for Udacity courses only to find the quali...Read more
My problem with Udacity Digital Marketing Nanodegree started when I received an e-mail with an announcement that something has changed regarding their promise that if I finish a yearly course within 6 months, I'd get a certain refund. Last week I had received another mail in which Udacity had changed the course's duration to 6 months, and then yet again to 5 months. I asked them how can they do that in the middle of someone's course?
They don't seem to care about the time we invest in these projects, rather it seems that their only priority is money. This isn't fair and I'm disappointed. For one of my last projects I didn't receive Udacity's invitation from Facebook and that was something necessary to finish my project.
I had sent messages to admins on FB and DMND and have ...Read more
Pros: (1) self-paced, (2) context-based, (3) context-driven, (4) presence of immediate feedback and correction. For example, one can complete one section for a week to build a strong foundation of skills set. Further, work sets are based on real-world problems, such as building a search engine and a web crawler. Finally, video feedback for solutions always provide corrections at the end of problem sets.
Cons: (1) limited opportunities for discussion (as with most MOOC platforms), for example, it is possible to consult mentor and peers in a classroom or workshop and discourse, but in MOOC even forums have delayed feedback.
There's a lot of positives about the Udacity front-end dev program. They make an effort to build community and provide assistance. There's always someone who is willing to help you. There's a lot of quizzes and projects so you can practice coding. The price is pretty reasonable and you can always go at your own pace.
The cons? The lecture videos aren't always very clear or easy to understand. It takes a lot of motivation to get through the program. I'd recommend doing the program while participating in a local meet up with more experience developers to help tutor you when you get stuck.
I love Udacity. I watch many free online courses (Intro to inferal stat, Intro to data science, python basic) before I made a decision to apply for Introduction to programming nanodegree.
They offer 7 days trial. I was worried before I enrolled because there are some reviews that they give back feedback late. Once I tried myself, the feedback is back within 2 days.
Personally I don't need 1-on-1 coaching. I can follow the lesson without problem but I valued for their feedback. My projects are checked thoroughly. Without the feedback, my code is good but not great. And if you can finish the course within 12 months, it will cost only 100 USD/month. Well, 100 USD/5 projects and they will check until it passed all the criteria. Moreover, the course is not too easy to get me bored.
Support is very limited. Don't think that it's right for an absolute beginner that need substantial feedback. I would recommend to watch the free videos and keep your money for it's not worth it. The money that you pay are for support are on projects only and not the pre-courses that you will need to review that also have mini projects that you will need to complete to help you learn. If you feel that you need a lot of support, Udacity is not it. It's best to go to a full blown boot-camp type of school.
