I wrote in my last post about how I couldn’t wait to try Udacity, and today the online open enrollment began.
Here’s how it works: You give them your credit card number*, you get seven days to try the class before it’s charged. Enrollment begins today and lasts a week, but study begins today too, if you want to jump right in.
When I saw the course was “6 to 9 months” I wasn’t sure what that means. But here is the explanation: Since it’s your own pace, you may finish it all sooner or later, it depends on how quickly you understand the material and finish the projects. And if you finish quickly you don’t pay for any more than you need.
Well, here begins the next adventure!
My next post will jump back on topic and be part 3 of the Online Learning Tools.
*Argh, I couldn’t believe it when I noticed my card expires in 2020. It’s the FUTURE.
