SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION EMPLOYMENT: MOOCs reach a new low (or "small," rather) with nanodegrees. Yesterday, Udacity announced plans to launch nanodegrees in the Fall with initial funding from AT&T's Aspire program--$1.5 million, to be exact. These nanodegrees will consist of hands-on courses selected by industry (Salesforce, Cloudera, etc.), a capstone project, and career advice from current professionals. 

Currently, Udacity is developing nanodegrees on front-end web developmentback-end web developmentiOS mobile development, Android mobile development, and data analysis.
