Google, Udacity Push Android Nanodegree Program To India, Offer 1,000 Scholarships To Deserving Students

Horia Ungureanu for Tech Times writes:   Udacity, the U.S. online education platform, aims to expand activity overseas and is targeting Indian students to accomplish that.

Founded by Stanford professor and ex-Google roboticist Sebastian Thrun, Udacity appealed to the education market by publishing free college courses online.
