A udacity nanodegree involves the following: 5% udacity, 95% figuring it out on your own. And the 5% that they bring to the table, they do with horrible pedigological strategies. The entirety of the nanodegree structure is based around telling you, vaguely and far too quickly, to go do something. They aren’t actually a teaching institution, but they pretend to be. They literally just point around and say go learn this and that.
One might argue that this is good, as a developer will require the ability to find and interpret difficult material on their own. Of course, that is a skill that’s essential to becoming a developer. However, the leverage that an instructional institution is designed to provide is one where the foundational elements of learning are provided, from which one can build. Udacity employs no such leverage. It’s garbage.
