There are some good things I can say about this course. First, the quality of the material delivered was rather good. The instructors really took the time and effort to deliver it in a straightforward and fun way. HOWEVER, there are tons of tutorials and videos you can find for free where you could learn even more. So if you are constant and disciplined you should basically learn everything that was taught in this course by just finding the right sources.
Now to the negative side: The course grading was not transparent. I am aware that there were people with absolutely NO CLUE about what they were doing copy code from others and be awarded scholarships for the second phase!!!! Scoring students high based on how much noise they make on Slack by posting even stupid things is NOT an obj...Read more
Used to have a mentor assigned to each student.
You used to be able to ask questions on a forum and the questions would be answered rather quickly.
You used to be able to have Live Help which meant Mentors would help you on demand.
You used to be able to set up one on one appointments with a mentor.
None of what I mentioned above applies to Udacity anymore it has all been replaced by a system where students help each other. Kind of like a Coursera course which costs significantly less.
They backed off on their lifetime access to the material.
You only get access to support for one year after graduating. Before it used to be lifetime.
One Nanodegree I finished with this company is no loner available(VR Developer)
Looking at their company it seems they are read...
Udacity has a good set-up with a solid framework and idea, however half of the subject material is non-lectured. Just pages of text that you could get from just picking up a coding book and completing the exercises. The only benefit I have seen so far is that you have a structured framework of projects that you can build throughout your experience. If I was not a CS student already, I would find it rather useless however.
I took part in Data Science Nanodegree. Intransparent regulations made the biggest part of the community very upset. Mamy felt cheated, raped and even discriminated. The content was like a kindergarden getting explained how to calculate an average for example. Links to external content where just linking to wikipedia or not working at all. The fact that the support just offered a discount on more courses shows that udacity just cares about money and not the people. Spending time was senseless and will not get me a job anywhere.
Do not pay $600 for this. Their support does not contain technical help, even the mentors sometimes might answer your questions. it would probably take 2-3 days. Do not pay $600 for their courses. $5-10 courses in udemy have much better content and even support.
The classes use extremely old tech and it's way overpriced. I actually got an Android Engineer job on my own by just practicing things, so I didn't even need the class. On top of that, I wrote into support one time, and they told me I owed them money due to a 'glitch' and canceled my enrollment, saying it would be another $400 to finish the final project (I am building it on my own for free). Don't do this, save your money and time
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
