Udacity’s Lessons Learned


Edsurge has an interview with Sebastian Thrun, CEO of  Udacity, about the lessons he is learning as his company matures.  Surely the news this week – the poor passing rates at San Jose State University, where experimental MOOCs were in place and put on pause following disclosure of results – has been reason to reflect.  “The outcome has been disappointing, concedes Thrun” but I don’t think many of us who have taken MOOCs or followed their evolution is really surprised.  It is interesting to read his personal perception, and future plans for both the program at SJSU and Udacity itself.
