Udacity is the result of an experimental Stanford Engineering online class that was conducted at the end of 2011 by Sabastian Thrun (Research Professor of Computer Science at Stanford) and Peter Norvig (Director of Research at Google). The Stanford Introduction to Artificial Intelligence Course (a 200 level course) was offered for free online with no prerequisites. The online group was 160,000 students for the ten week course. 23,000 passed the homework and exams. 253 had perfect scores. Students used the class blog to post questions and a Facebook “Like” system that caused the best questions to rise to the top. Students from around the world were teaching one another. This has the potential to obsolete the tuition model. Udacity is starting with Computer Science courses but will soon expand to the sciences. Like this: Like Loading...

Imagine No College Debt (It Isn't Hard to Do) - Sophie Quinton Traditional universities could soon be forced to accept credits from online courses. Associated Press/Jessica Hill Making it in America used to mean earning enough to send your kids to college. These days, it requires getting a degree yourself first--and then possibly upgrading your credentials and skills to qualify for a promotion or to switch fields. Education, as President Obama likes to say, isn't a luxury-good anymore. Online education institutions have long served students who want to get a higher degree on their own schedule, and who aren't looking for the dorm experience, student center, and extra costs that come along with a traditional residential campus. The next generation of innovators, such as StraighterLine and UniversityNow, are further redefining what constitutes a course credit and how learning can be priced. StraighterLine isn't an accredited institution, because it doesn't award degrees. Online institutions can also act as virtual laboratories.
