Georgia Tech + Udacity = $7,000 degree

MOOCs aren’t disruptive — unless they lead to a degree. It didn’t take long. Georgia Tech will partner with Udacity to offer an online master’s degree in computer science for $7,000, reports Forbes. The on-campus program costs $40,000.

Georgia Tech hopes to grow its master’s program from 300 students now to as many as 10,000 within three years, but expects to hire only eight new instructors.

    I hope together with those eight instructors they hire a bunch of TAs. Creating and running a MOOC is not as easy as it might seem.
