About the Foundation
Udacity began as an experiment in online learning, when Stanford instructors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig elected to offer their “Introduction to Artifial Intelligence” course online to anyone, for free. Over 160,000 students in more than 190 countries enrolled. The opportunity for global education was awe-inspiring and Udacity was established to fulfill a mission of democratizing education. It would take many years of intense refinement and innovation to articulate their emphasis on career advancement through mastering of high-demand skills, but today, Udacity proudly provides potential learners around the world the chance to engage in some of the world’s most thrilling and creative fields — and contribute to them.
Udacity students are a internationally educated community unified with a common objective of upliftment and growth. The unique learning model makes for an unparalleled degree of interaction with their pupils, and Udacity is with them in every step of their learning journey — from the first moment a marketing team member might answer a question on Facebook, to the final moment where a career team member gets news that a graduate has got a new job. The motto of Udacity is Students First, and that is the light that drives them as Udacity continues its goal of supplying as many students as possible with the best quality learning available.
Udacity’s mission is to use tech education to boost careers. They work with leading technology organizations to discover how technology is changing environments, and to develop the vital engineering skills that corporations are demanding in their labor force. Even the toughest learners can prep themselves to take on the most in-demand tech positions with Udacity’s strong and versatile digital education platform.
