What is a Nanodegree and and how is it structured?
A Nanodegree is an online course. It is highly interactive with activities, such as quizzes and exercises, interspersed between short videos and interviews with instructors and industry experts. After a lesson, there will usually be a problem set with exercises for you to reaffirm that you have learned the material. Just like the quizzes and videos, you can repeat them as many times as you like. You will learn by dealing with real-world projects built in partnership with top tier companies that lead to real skills mastery. One of the highlights around learning with Udacity is the capstone project included at the end of a program. You can add your project to your portfolio afterwards.
While progressing through a Nanodegree, you will benefit from personalized mentoring, as well as detailed project reviews and feedback. Upon successful completion of a course, you will receive an official Udacity Nanodegree certificate of achievement.
How long will the Nanodegree program take?
Usually, 3-4 months is the regular and estimated period of time for most Nanodegrees to complete them. However, we are offering a six-months entry, as more time is often needed an required. This depends on the complexity of the program and on individual previous knowledge.
Can I complete the course at my own pace?
There are two start-dates per year. Participants begin the course together. After that, your time is at your own disposal and you can work independently and at your own pace. If you would like to start inmediately please contact your HR department or the Bertelsmann University team, there may be an unused license that you can use.
