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.
