Best to learn New

What do you like best?

Udacity has various courses and course content is the latest and very useful to learn something new.

It has courses even for beginners and that is the best. Udacity has a many of courses like Deep Learning and Machine learning that other course sites don't have.Some instructors are very good and go through each and every point in detail thinking about the learner.

What do you dislike?

Udacity courses vary like some courses are very good whereas some needs improvement. Udacity courses which are really good are quite expensive. Course certification is also expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Udacity as it has lots of courses in different areas. Instructors are also too good. Those who are new and want to learn, it is the best platform to start with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Udacity gives lots of knowledge to employees which benefits business. I learned Javascript, JAVA and much more technology through Udacity.

Free without certificate. Great courses by Google, Github, etc

What do you like best?

Udacity has a lot of courses like Deep Learning and Machine learning that other course sites simply don't have. Another huge advantage is it's often by their creators, for example, instructors from Google teaches the android development course. Added on to that is the fact that it's free. Some instructors like the instructor for Android development for absolute beginners is really good and goes through everything at a good pace. Whereas others like the instructors for the Android development course simply isn't as up to date because the course was released years back and they never update it.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem with Udacity is that its quality of courses varies. Some courses are taught really well, whereas others are not. Another problem is that it is not well updated. So as android improves and changes, it's old courses taught using old sdk is still the same. And you end up using a lot of deprecated code and workarounds in your lessons. Worse of all, the forum really sucks at answering questions. If you are stuck, expect to figure it out yourself. For courses that are brand new, that problem isn't as significant. And for courses that are evergreen... ie: Git and Github where they don't really change much over the years, the courses are still great. Another problem is it's certification is also really expensive, but you can choose to not get it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure the courses are up to date before you start. And be aware that you aren't going to get your questions answered. If you want to have a Q&A relationship with the instructor go to some other course websites. Like companies such as Udemy, Egghead.io, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Udacity teaches people lessons. It taught me to code for android and taught me how to use Git and Github.

What Online Course Providers solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Wisely spend money

What do you like best?

Udacity is focused on few topics such data analysis, machine learning and open-source web technologies. Theirs courses / nanodegrees are very interactive. I like most the project part where by practise I can try immediately everything I read before. Theirs education system is very polished.

What do you dislike?

I like almost everything. Sometimes I feel that in lecture practise is not enough. E.g. in the React course / nanodegree.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can spend the time and you are interested into theirs content. You definitely need to do it. As I said again. These are very wisely spend money. I really believe that the material will be enough if you seek for career change in your field.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I get really good training in certain fields. I think by the end of the education I will be capable enough to start a new job in a new field.

Udacity | Best curated courses

What do you like best?

The quality of the content of the courses is really to a sky-rocketing level. The interface of Udacity is good looking and the Android mobile app is also good. Also, nanodegree programs are accepted and certified by companies so that helps in building the profile a lot. There are also courses by giants like Google on that platform which adds a lot of value.

What do you dislike?

The support of Udacity is not that good and definitely not up to the mark really

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend taking a free class and then decide whether to pay for a course or not.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been as effective as taking up a class in a well established university directly. It helps in skill development at our own pace which can also be achieved in our free time.

Udacity was a waste of money for me. I can't believe it was this awful.

What do you like best?

Nothing. Nothing about Udacity is worth praise. This company has the worst support possible. The quality of content and support is unbelievably low.

What do you dislike?

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 quality far worse than any other online education out there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not pay for this service. It is not worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No benefits at all. The lie about everything to begin with. When I first contacted them they mentioned after paying several hundred dollars for a course I would be able to access it indefinitely. However, now I find that this was a lie. The support team is one of the worst I've seen.

Udacity (as part of Georgia Tech's Online Masters)

What do you like best?

I've been taking classes with Udacity for over three years now. I have yet to experience any downtime -- my classes have always been available when I want to take them. I've had no issues with video speed or playback. Sometimes the quizzes are a bit quirky, but for the most part they behave as expected.

What do you dislike?

A recent update to the UI introduced a few things I don't care for:

- There is now a 5 second delay between lesson videos

- The section where you choose your class is limited to only a few shown at a time (using a "card" style instead of a "list" style). This means you may have to scroll quite a bit to get to the class you want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend taking a free class to evaluate how well Udacity works. I would also recommend trying some of its competitors such as edX and Coursera.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am taking classes as part of Georgia Tech's Online Masters in Computer Science. Udacity has been an effective venue for class delivery.
