Georgia Tech Evaluating Online Computer Science Master’s Program
After their first semester of an affordable online master’s degree program in computer science, Georgia Institute of Technology is evaluating the program. The program attempted to offer high quality of academics at a lower price than their traditional classes ($402 for a three-credit course vs $472 for just a single credit hour of face-to-face courses). The initiative was also an important investment for Udacity, which is pivoting away from traditional MOOCs to over paid certificate programs and corporate training.
According to Inside Higher Ed, the school will gradually grow the program, in hopes of enrolling 10,000 in two years.
