Udacity provides project-based online classes that allow users to enhance their learning experiences by working on real-world projects.

Description

Update

Udacity was founded by three roboticists who believed much of the educational value of their university classes could be offered online for very low cost.

A few weeks later, over 160,000 students in more than 190 countries enrolled in their first class, "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence." The class was twice profiled by the New York Times and also by other news media. Now they are growing a team of educators and engineers, on a mission to change the future of education.
