Udacity.com is offering one free month on one of the 40 premium Nanodegree programs. The offer is only for the U.S. and Europe and is limited to one Nanodegree program per student.
The average price for an individual signing up for a nanodegree is about $400 a month. Degrees take anywhere from four to six months to complete, according to the company.
“If you’ve been laid-off, or stuck working at home, or even have stir-crazy kids that need something to do, we can help,” Stephanie Lager, manager at Udacity wrote in a blog post.
“We want to help students, small business owners, gig workers, and employees of large companies accelerate their education and career upskilling by offering one free month on any Udacity program,” Gabe Dalporto, CEO at Udacity, said.
“We know that in some cases this can’t replace lost income or time in class, but it can help provide opportunities to sharpen much-needed skills that are necessary for the future of work,” he added.
The learning company plans to announce new initiatives over the coming weeks and months.
